SNSWUA - 2 July 2012
“Play ball!” has been called on the 2012 SAL International Youth Cup.
From now until July 6, some of the best youth softballers from Australia and the Pacific will take to the diamonds at Blacktown International Sportspark.
This year’s Cup has attracted 8 men’s teams and 8 women’s teams from NSW, ACT, Victoria, South Australia and New Zealand, in addition to both the U17 Australian Boy’s and Girl's Squad Teams and the U19 Australian Women’s Squad Teams.
“This year’s Youth Cup promises to be just as strong as previous years. We’re looking forward to seeing and being part of some great games,” TCU Leanne Gearside said.
Joining the rising stars of our game on the diamond will be an umpire crew of 30 umpires who will be looking to hone their skills. They will be led by TCU Leanne Gearside (NSW) and assisted by Assessors Mark Toft (QLD) and Ryan Thorneycroft (VIC).
Like the team list, the umpire list sees many interstate umpires travelling to Sydney for this year’s Youth Cup, with senior umpires from South Australia, Victoria and Queensland on the crew.
Andrew McManus and Judi Leper, from New Zealand, have also made the journey across the ditch and will no doubt be made welcome by their fellow blues throughout the week.
“I’m sure everyone from NSW will welcome our visiting interstate and overseas umpires and we hope that they will have an enjoyable time working with us,” Gearside said.
The action started at Blacktown from 9.00am this morning, with games continuing until 7pm tonight. The Cup Finals will be played on Friday 6 July at 1.00pm.
