Head Coach Adam Voges said the squad boasts a great mix of experience and youth.
“It’s great to be able to add some really exciting young talents to the program,” Voges said.
“Bradley Hope has been rewarded for his brilliant form in the Futures League as well as Premier Cricket, where he scored more than 800 runs at an average of 73.45.
“Jayden and Sam are two of the most promising young batters in the country, who have performed well in national youth championships.
“We’ve kept the main core of the squad together which is great, and a real testament to our guys and the program we have in WA.
“There were some good signs in the back end of our Sheffield Shield campaign so we will look to build on that, and we’d hope to go a couple of steps further in the One Day Cup this season.”
