THE ACT Meteors have added five
new faces to their squad for the
upcoming Women's National Cricket
League season as they look to claim
their first title.
The new additions are New Zealand
left-arm fast bowler Sian Ruck,
16-year-old fast bowler Zoe Cooke,
left-arm spinner Sam Bates, and for-
mer ACT junior representatives Van-
essa Picker and Hannah Wallet.
Meteors coach Martin Garoni said
he was hopeful the new squad
members would be able to cover the
loss of experienced players Leonie
Coleman and Georgia Elwiss.
''We've got a group of good young
players and we'll be trying to go one
step further this season and make at
least one of the finals,'' he said.
Garoni said the side had focused on
fitness training in the off-season.
''We play for three days each
weekend and last season we would
play really well two out of three days
but let ourselves down on the other
day, often against lesser teams,'' he
''This season we are looking to be
fit and firing and putting our oppo-
sition under the pump.''
He said the team would need a
number of its lesser experienced
players to play a leading role this
season if it was to be a force.
''Asha Smith and Laura Wright
could be a really potent force at the top
of the order, and Kris [Britt] and
Charlotte [Anneveld] have been con-
sistently good for a number of seasons
now,'' Garoni said.
''We need the crux of our squad to
step up and make solid contributions
every time they play, not just every
now and then.''
Meteors captain Kris Britt said the
team could match it with traditional
heavyweights NSW and Victoria.
''Potential-wise this team is as good
as any and they hold no fear of NSW
and Victoria,'' she said.
The Meteors open their season at
Manuka Oval on Friday, October 21
with a Twenty20 match against South
Australia. They then play the same
opponents in a 50-over match on the
Saturday and another Twenty20 match
on the Sunday.
