TWO Rockingham-Mandurah players have been selected in the 13-player squad for next month’s Under-18 Female National Championships in Canberra.

Caitlin Crocetta and Jazmyne Roberts were picked for the squad, which will be captained by Melville’s Niamh Walsh and coached by Orazio Santalucia at the tournament, which runs from January 13-19.

“This squad has worked well since the end of August and has developed pleasingly over this time,” Santalucia said.

“There has been some significant development in a lot of the squad and they have been consistent performers in club cricket, which puts them in good stead for the upcoming championships.

“The squad will work well together and I look forward to some competitive cricket from this group, who will provide a good challenge for everyone who plays us.

“I see definite future Fury and Scorchers players in this squad and I look forward to this step in their development pathway.”

WA’s first game at the carnival is on Wednesday, January 13, against hosts ACT/NSW Country.
