FNC players picked in Queensland junior train-on squads

AFTER a successful Queensland Baseball State tournament held last weekend in Lismore, FNC have had six players selected in the Queensland train-on squad.

The under-16 and under-18 age groups will undergo intensive training for the next four weeks after which the Queensland team, in both age groups, will be selected to contest the National Titles from January 2-9 2015 in Sydney.

The FNC under-16s came in fifth in the state titles and 34 players were selected in the Queensland squad of which four FNC players received the good news of their selection. These were Harry Martin, Oakley McMahon, Kodey Wilford and Noah Worgan.

In the under-18 squad, 31 players made the cut of which two FNC players made the train-on squad. These were Will Riley and Taliesan O'Mera.

Two Gold Coast players who were regular players in the FNC competition this year, also received selection. These were Steven Edwards and Dylan Fox.

The selection in the state squad will be a great experience to all players with the opportunity to be trained under the guidance of not only Queensland's best coaches but also Australia's best coaches.

Should these players make the final Queensland team they will be competing against the best junior baseballers in Australia.
