Colts

Colts practice nights: every Thursday from 6.30 pm

Cricket for Girls & Boys of all abilities ages 6 to 13.


Ealing Trailfinders Cricket Club play at Trailfinders Sports Club on Vallis Way, West Ealing. The ground has great cricket facilities with an immaculately kept cricket pitch, new cricket pavilion, nets and bowling machine, it has to be one of the best places to play cricket in West London.

We run colts sides in the Middlesex Colt Association leagues and also play friendly cricket. Ealing Trailfinders CC is an ECB Clubmark club providing a centre of excellence in the coaching of young cricketers in a safe and effective learning environment.

Colts are a very important part of our club and a key ingredient to the Ealing Trailfinders CC family.

Coaching

Our approach is simple. Our ECB qualified coaches will teach your child the basics of cricket; batting, bowling, fielding and game awareness in a fun and participative atmosphere, to ensure they have a sound foundation with which to go forward. Over time we will introduce the colts to the longer forms of the game and eventually a full adult game of cricket as part of their continuing cricket education. We aim to give every colt some competitive cricket during the season.

From the age of 13 our colts are encouraged to play for the adult XI’s at the weekend to build further on their education and to become our cricket players of the future.
