Join the Cricket Academy and show off your wicket skills!
The Cricket Academy gives players the chance to play competitively whilst making new friends.
The Academy offers players the chance to train (using a range of nets, strength & conditioning sessions, therapy and training), earn entry to the winter indoor cricket league and both the AoC indoor and outdoor competitions.
Director of Cricket, Andrew Maguire, has coached the Academy to a AoC National T20 title in 2019 alongside 3 consecutive top 5 finishes at the AoC National Indoor Championships. In addition, the Academy have also won numerous regional titles both indoor and outdoor.

What our Academy students say
The academy has been fantastic, and with us regularly training and playing matches, my cricket has massively improved. I definitely recommend coming to Middlesbrough College, everything from the facilities to the location stands out – there’s everything you need under one roof!
