Having been selected for the 2023-24 Vic Metro U17 Male Emerging Players Squad in July, Upper Yarra cricketer Dylan Walker has been selected as part of the squad that will compete in the U17 National Championships in Ballarat next year.
Dylan Walker has spent his junior cricket playing for Warburton and the merged Seville Burras side, though he will now ply his trade for Ringwood as part of his rise to the top.
Dylan made his 1st XI debut at the senior level in 2021 at the Seville Burras, getting to play alongside his dad Mick and also featured in the Outer East Eagles representative side in the Youth Premier League last summer, fishing fourth in the Stars League, which is affiliated with Big Bash League franchise the Melbourne Stars.
Dylan is a bit of an all-rounder, bowling left-arm off-spin and facing up as a right-hand batter.
In 48 career matches prior to the start of this season, Dylan had hit 1153 runs at an average of 52.41 and a high score of 100 not out, while also nabbing 82 wickets at an average of 12.05 and best figures of 5/7.
