We are here to support and encourage the development of cricket and cricketers in Middlesex, through the distribution of grants and the provision of valuable information

Our latest project
Disability Awareness and Inclusion Training
As a result of the increasing number of children with a disability being educated in mainstream schools, MCT will be funding at a cost of £7500 the new MCB programme of awareness and inclusion training for its 96 C2S coaches deployed in over 200 schools, covering 27 Chance to Shine and 10 Streetchance projects. It is important to ensure these coaches have the necessary skills, support and confidence to differentiate their coaching sessions in varying and sometimes challenging environments.
Working with the English Federation for Disability Sport, a bespoke workshop will be delivered, targeted at club officers/coaches, to support the transition of players from Hit the Top Clubs to mainstream cricket clubs.
We are now funding a new initiative working in conjunction with the MCB Development Officers and local clubs to identify talent in each of the 17 Boroughs of the County and to raise teams at U12 and U14 levels for both boys and girls to play in competition over the next 2 seasons
We are also funding for the next 2 years a new project for secondary schools in the Boroughs of 'Kensington & Chelsea' and 'Hammersmith & Fulham' to link with local clubs and play each other in competition
"For a cricket lover there can be no better sight than that of kids enjoying our great game. The MCT gives kids in Middlesex the chance to learn how to play cricket in our county with the best coaches and the best facilities. Support the MCT and ensure a bright future for Middlesex cricket."
Andrew Strauss, Middlesex & England
"Without the help of the MCT, we would not have been able to
purchase the cricket equipment needed for our junior coaching"
