Pilley appeal to be heard after other dismissed
SYDNEY. ? Former Yamba squash star Cameron Pilley's appeal against his non-selection in the Australian Commonwealth Games team will be heard today, after two other players appeals were dismissed.
Australian squash duo Melissa Martin and Cameron White both tasted disappointment as the Squash Australia Appeals Committee rejected the appeals late on Monday, but both players can still take the matter further to the National Sports Disputes Centre.
Squash Australia chief executive Norman Fry said the pair had until 3pm tomorrow to notify the sport's national body if they wish to continue action.
Pilley's appeal is due to be heard by Squash Australia's three-member appeals board in Brisbane today.
The three players are disputing their non-selection in the five-man and five-woman squash team which was announced for the March Games earlier this month.
Martin and Pilley were both named as reserves for the team, while White was a member of the extended lead-up squad.
On both cases heard Monday, Fry said in a statement: "The Appeals Committee considered that the selection decision was both fair and reasonable and confirmed that it upheld it."
