2016 Clint Hinchliffe Niamh Walsh

Niamh Walsh (2016)
Niamh is an 18 year old All Rounder who is currently on a Gap Year after completing her final year at Santa Maria College. She was selected as the captain of the State U18 squad which competed in the National U18 Championships in Canberra last season (2016/17). This is her second stint as State captain after she did the job in season 2015/16. Her leadership qualities stand out clearly amongst her peers as well as her understanding of the game. Her playing ability - where she is a right arm medium pace bowler and right handed middle order batter - enables Niamh to influence the game in a big way. Niamh is also a very athletic and competitive fielder. Niamh also had a very solid season for her club side (Melville) in the WACA Female Premier Competition where she played a leading role with the ball as well as some vital contributions with the bat. Often Niamh was asked to open the bowling or bowl in crucial periods of matches and she did this very well throughout the season. Niamh’s leadership qualities shine bright here, too, where she regularly captained the side - a side that includes current & former State and International players. Niamh has been included in the WA Female Academy both last season and this season which is an indication of the potential in her game to possibly progress to the next level. With continued hard work and dedication we may one day see Niamh progress to bigger and better honours. 

Clint Hinchliffe (2016)
Clint had a successful 2016/17 season and as a Rookie contracted player for the Warriors was the leading the runs scorer for WA in the Futures League competition with 400 runs at 44.44 including a top score of 113 against NSW. He had another impressive year in Premier Cricket for Joondalup , scoring 595 runs at 49.6 and a top score of 105no. He also displayed his all-round abilities by taking 17 wickets in first grade at an average of 26.2.
