About Us

Sheen Park Colts – now known as Sheen Scorchers, was formed in 2004 and over the past 15 years has grown a significant reputation as being one of the leading clubs in Middlesex.

Not only has the club won numerous trophies - it has also produced a fine crop of cricketers who have distinguished themselves at County level.

Close to 40 boys have represented Middlesex and Surrey Colts in the past decade and four former players – Bradley Erasmus, Tom Lace, Cole Campbell and Abdullah Nazir - are currently playing 2nd XI County Cricket.

A boutique club, Sheen has built a reputation around the simple philosophy of providing a pathway for boys who want to develop a skill-set that will give them the opportunity of playing at the highest level both in their age group and above.

It is common for boys to play a year up - and some have been known to compete two or even three years above their age.

There is a strong accent on quality rather than quantity. Whilst other local clubs will take on 60 to 70 boys in a particular year, as many as 40 won't get a game of cricket all summer.

Sheen prioritises development and excellence by limiting the size of a squad to 20, meaning every child has the opportunity to play on a regular basis.

As well as competing in Middlesex Leagues, the club plays in the Mid-Surrey League on a Sunday morning, offering extra matches for many of their members. 

Tony Bradshaw, who founded the junior section after retiring from competitive cricket, is Head Coach and he is supported by former Australian Academy protege Scott Moody - arguably the best bowling coach in the London area - and Ali Fraser, brother of Middlesex supremo and former England seamer Gus Fraser.

A total of seven coaches are involved at the club, all with CRB checks and a minimum of a Level I coaching certificate.

Sheen runs an Academy for its very best players and hosts a programme that shadows the Middlesex County Squad initiative - making the jump from Club to County a natural progression forward. 

A strong relationship with the County means there is always clear dialogue regarding the prospective development of players. There is always an ongoing assessment of their needs and a clear focus as regards priorities as they move up through the age groups.

The Club runs seven teams teams from U9 to U14, attracting an annual membership of around 120 young players from the age of six. It prides itself in its standard of coaching and runs a year round programme of activities.

For the boys striving to stay in the County system, the feeder club from the age of 14 is Richmond who play in the top eschelon of Middlesex adult competition.

We train in the Michaelmas and Spring terms at the Richmond Park Academy, run outdoor nets and matches through the season on Sheen Common and host Easter and Summer Camps at the same venue.

Ethos

We believe our task is to provide a warm and friendly environment in which we can support the mental, moral and physical development of boys and girls through the game of cricket, as well as contributing to the improvement in the standard of the sport across the region.

"IT WAS A pleasure to have played for Sheen Park. It was an important part of developing my competitiveness at a young age within a 'want to win' culture. More importantly some great memories. Thank you always." BRADLEY ERASMUS, Surrey Academy.
