Our Cricket Club is established teams playing in leagues supported by a new Colts structure for young people.
London Tigers cricket club (LTCC) was established due to many young people in Inner London Boroughs from disadvantaged backgrounds, demanding that they have an opportunity to play competitive cricket. The club manages the UK Bangladesh Cricket team and have won the Lords Taverners Inner City Cricket World Cup representing Bangladesh.
London Tigers delivers cricket for children, women and men in schools and local communities across London. The club also runs local cricket leagues and high-profile national and international tournaments ranging from 6-a-side to 11-a-side T20 matches with the objective of raising funds to sustain the delivery of local activities in disadvantaged communities.
The Saturday team playing in Middlesex Championship League (MCL) Division 3 gained promotion to Division 2 after finishing runners up. The promotion was dependent on having a second team and colts setup by 2017. Second team has been accepted by MCL IN 2017 season having, two adult teams will compete in the MCL.
London Tigers are working in partnership with Capital Kids Cricket (CKC) to develop our junior club structure. CKC has assigned their team to work in schools such as Dormers Wells, Featherstone and other primary schools. They will sign post the children & young people to sessions at our site with the view of building the junior club structure in a sustainable way with volunteers and parental involvement. The aim is to provide support so that our colt’s teams are playing matches next year so that our MCL team can continue their promotion.
Although our junior players played in our youth tournaments this year just to test themselves out and at some other local tape ball competitions organised at Spikesbridge Park, we will work hard to arrange more hardball opportunities next year. We will organise winter indoor cricket from within the school sites where CKC are continuing to deliver cricket throughout the year and build momentum for the next season.
We have two teams playing in the National Cricket League (NCL) on Sunday’s; one in the Premier Division and the other in Division 2. The premier division team finished in fourth place and the 2nd team lost in the T20 cup semi-final. Therefore we have four adult teams in total at the moment.
We have secured the Cricket Club Mark for 3 years from 2018, recognising our quality assured model of cricket coaching and management.
