Cricket – a rich PSA vein

The PSA in Western Australia continues to produce a rich vein of first-class cricketers in all forms of the modern game.

The PSA’s incredible history of developing Domestic and International representative cricketers has continued into the 20/21 season. Whether it be in the test arena, the domestic shield and one day competitions, or the more flamboyant Big Bash League, the PSA continues to be represented in force.

The recent 20/21 Test Series against India saw Scotch College graduate, Cameron Green (S ’16), become the PSA’s newest Australian representative. Of course, he joins fine company along with the Marsh brothers, Shaun and Mitch (W ’00 and ’08), and Cameron Bancroft (A ’10), who have all recently donned the Baggy Green. Other successful PSA graduates to play and/or coach at the representative level include Marcus Stoinis (H ’06), Aaron Hardie (A ’16), Ashton Turner (C ’10 ), Tom Moody (G ’83) and Simon Katich (T ’92), amongst many, many others.

While the above are more recent success stories, each PSA member school has at some stage in their rich and long history, produced many outstanding first-class cricketers. This can be attributed to the high quality coaching and outstanding facilities as well as the strong sporting bond shared by all of the PSA schools and colleges.

Judging by the quality of the 2020/2021 PSA season, the PSA tradition of developing outstanding young cricketers is going to continue for many years ahead.
