Talented Albany player Heath Cremasco has been selected to stand in goals for WA two years in a row after Hockey WA released their 2019 men’s country team this week.

Cremasco, who had played previously at national level for the Northern Territory, made his debut in WA colours at the Australian Country Hockey Championships in August last year and after that earned a call-up to the Australian under-21 men’s team.

Coach Cory Letts named a squad of 18 players for the national championships in Shepparton, Victoria in August and Cremasco is one of two goalies in the team with Geraldton’s Kyle Avery.

Cremasco has been the standout men’s keeper in the Lower Great Southern Hockey Association in recent years and has been in terrific touch for Manypeaks this season.
