Managers and Coaching Team

Director of Cricket – Shaftab Khalid

Ealing Cricket Club has a history of involving the current senior players in the development of the next generation of cricketers at the club. Several of our coaches play senior cricket for the club and many even attended the courses themselves in their younger days.

The club attributes a lot of the Senior 1st Teams success to the quality of the holiday coaching courses. Ealing were National T20 champions in 2011 & 2015 with several of the team having joined the club at 6 or 7 years old. In 2017 Ealing were crowned Middlesex League Champions for the 11th time, again with a team which included many former junior Ealing Juniors.
