After an avalanche of runs in Premier Cricket, the Ryder Medal favourite was finally rewarded with a cap in the final match of the season against South Australia at the Junction Oval.In typical fashion, Seymour didn’t let the opportunity go to waste, getting off the mark with a six before making 60, as the game ended in a draw.While thrilled to have broken into the state squad, Seymour was disappointed he didn’t go on and reach triple figures.“Absolutely, it’s something I’ve worked pretty hard for for a long period of time, to wear a Victorian cap,” he said.“Obviously, not the result we would have liked – playing in a draw – but a good experience.“I felt pretty comfortable out there but the wicket was pretty flat.“I was pretty disappointed actually, I was hoping to get through to stumps (on Day 2) and come back in the morning.“It was good that Harps made a hundred but I was disappointed to get out for sure, you get a start like that when you’ve waited so long for a debut I was disappointed I didn’t kick on.”Seymour’s half-century was Victoria’s second highest score behind Sam Harper’s maiden Sheffield Shield ton.He hopes this isn’t the last taste of Shield cricket.“We’ll see what happens, there’s obviously a few guys away from the Vic squad at the moment, Pucovski’s injured and Finch and Maxwell are away,” he said.“Hopefully I’ve shown something that the selectors and coaches want to give me another go next season.”While Essendon failed to make finals, Seymour finished as Premier Cricket’s second leading run-scorer with 822 runs at an average of 91.33 – his fourth straight season with more than 700 runs.He’s among the favourites to win a second straight Ryder Medal after tying with Ringwood’s David King last season.Seymour also scored a match-winning 110 not out for a Premier Cricket XI against the Victorian squad in a Marsh Cup warm-up, which secured a late-season Big Bash League call-up.Combined with a glut of runs in the Darwin District competition and stint with Randwick-Petersham in Sydney Grade Cricket, Seymour has knocked up 1874 runs since June last year with seven centuries.BOMBERS: ESSENDON STAR AYRE CALLS TIME ON CAREERLEADER: GET YOUR PREMIER CRICKET NEWS HEREPREMIER: BOMBERS PROMISE VIGOROUS REVIEW OF SEASONAfter a hectic 12 months the run-machine is now looking forward to a break.“Disappointing we didn’t make finals at Essendon but personally I had a good season, so happy with that,” he said.“Might have a bit of a rest, it’s 10 seasons in a row I’ve played over the winter.“I might go to Darwin for the Strike League but I’m not too sure yet, we’ll see what happens over the next couple of months.”
