Western Australia Cricket Association
June 27, 2002
The Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) is pleased to announce three additions to its list of State Contracted Players for season 2002-03.
Callum Thorp, Beau Casson and Peter Worthington have been included in the Western Warriors squad for next season after the WACA's International and Interstate Committee gave formal approval of recommendations made by the WA State Selectors.
Beau Casson and Peter Worthington have been awarded a Rookie Contract and Callum Thorp a Senior Contract. Last season Worthington held a Senior Contract and Casson held a Rookie Contract.
27 year old Thorp is tall right-arm out-swing bowler and handy lower order batsman from Wanneroo Cricket Club.
Thorp was awarded a contract following an outstanding 2001-2002 season in the WACA s Sunsmart League, where he claimed 50 wickets at an average of 16.38 and finished second in the Olly Cooley medal.
Thorp was selected in the WA 2nd XI for the final game of last season and showed his capabilities by taking 4-52 from 17.5 overs in the 1st innings and 3-22 from 13.1 overs in the 2nd. He also scored 28 runs in the WA 2nd innings, batting at number 8.
The WACA has the option of awarding a further Senior Contract and Rookie Contract prior to finalising its list of contracted Players for season 2002-2003.
