The North Hobart Cricket Club today announced a 14-man squad and two emergencies for the first week of the upcoming CTPL U18 Vacation competition. Binding some of Tasmania’s finest U18 cricketers together, the competition will be played in Hobart over the next two weeks.
The North Hobart squad boasts nine Cricket Tasmania underage representatives, including recruits from the north of the state with Jake Williams, Lachlan Newland and Dominic Rawlings all travelling down from the NTCA competition. With seven members of the side have represented the North Hobart Cricket Club at First Grade level, experience will not be an issue.
Luke Williams (Captain) and Samuel Lewis-Johnson (Vice Captain) will lead the side out on the field, whilst David Collins (Coach) will manage and coach the side.
In past seasons, the North Hobart side have narrowly missed out on a Grand Final birth in the competition, but with a well experienced team, David ‘Didge’ Collins will be looking to take his team deep into the competition.
The competition commences on Tuesday 9th January. Group matches will be played on January 9, 10 and 11, with the Semi Final and Grand Final to be played on Tuesday January 16th and Thursday January 18th respectively.
