IMPORTANT INFORMATION for PLAYERS
We are approaching the final trial for the Austria A-Team for 2015, which will take place this Friday, 1st May from 13:00 at ACS, Markommanenstrasse, 1220 Wien. We have ended up with over 50 nominations from 11 clubs – which is great.
Here is some important information about the trial.
- The trial will start at 13:00 and so players should arrive in time to be ready and changed for action. Late arrival will not be seen as good practice.
- Each player is responsible for bringing and looking after their own kit – no bats/pads/etc. will be provided by SNASY/ACA for the trial.
- The forecast for Friday isn’t great, but the trial will take place whatever the weather.
- During the trial, we will require from the players information about nationality and length of time in Austria etc. More details are available from your club chairmen.
After the trial, a group of between 20 – 25 players will be selected to attend the regular Austria A-Team training which will take place every Wednesday and Friday evening at ACS. As stated before, players will be selected based on trials and on performances for their clubs and will include a balance of batsmen, keepers, fast and slow bowlers. As it is focused on the future, only players up to the age of 30 will be eligible and selection will be based purely on ability and potential. Players and clubs will be notified as soon as possible.
Good luck to all players!
Best Cricketing Wishes,
Matt Toogood, Oscar Wanigasekera
