Rising all-rounder Michael Ferreira has been rewarded for a standout season with selection in the WACA under-19 development squad.

Ferreira was named with the release of the under-17 and under-19 development squads for the 2018-19 season, which includes nine other regional players including three more from the Great Southern.

Former Collingwood Park paceman Bryce Jackson has again been selected in the under-19 development squad, while Jordan Clark was also selected in the under-19s and younger brother Jye Clark was selected in the under-17 squad.

Playing for Midland Guildford in the WACA under-17 Ted Hussey Shield competition, Ferreira topped the run scorers, finishing with 528 at an average of 66 from nine innings, including an un-beaten 169 against Fremantle and he starred with 5-12 in the grand final.
