Colts Summer Matches

Our colts teams play in the North Area of the Middlesex Colts Association (MCA) League. All matches start at 6pm. Players need to arrive at the ground no later than 5.30pm for the warm up. For away matches all players must meet directly at the away venue - we do not arrange lifts from our ground. Cup games can be on any day of the week and are advised once the cup draws are made.

Selection is informed by email or text a few days in advance of the fixture date. By pressing the "I am available" or the "I am not available" button in the email or replying "yes" or "no" to your text, it updates our team-sheet on the website and confirms that player's availability to the team manager. It is important to make yourself available for both home and away matches. If the match is called off due to bad weather, the parents of those players selected will receive a text message.

All colts selected for matches must wear our official club shirt.
