The AW Green Shield competition is the premier Under-16 competition in Australia and an excellent transition for juniors into grade cricket. We place great emphasis on helping Green Shield players graduate into grade cricket, with over half of the club’s current senior players commencing at ‘Greenies’ level. The ‘journey’ is exemplified by three young men who played Green Shield in 2019/20 who are currently representing the Stags in First Grade.
Our Green Shield team has been coached by Nick Miller and Matt Wright for the past 3 seasons. Nick is the Assistant Coach for the club and a recently retired player. Matt Wright is a regular First Grade player and one of our two Club Captains. The team performed strongly in the 2021-22 season, making the semi-finals. Sidhant Singh was selected in the Green Shield Team of the Year.
