In just a few short years, Northern Strikers Sport Club has transformed from a small WhatsApp group into a thriving sports club with a strong presence in the cricketing community. Founded in 2017 by Midhun Rajilan, the club initially started as the Malton Boys Cricket Club, consisting of Midhun, Thomas Varghese, and their North Indian friends who shared a love for cricket. Over time, their team grew, attracting members from the Malayali and North Indian communities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and nearby cities.
In 2019, the club underwent a significant transformation, adopting the name Northern Strikers, a suggestion by Krishna Dev (Devan), one of their board members. With their new identity, Northern Strikers began making waves in the cricketing world, participating in numerous tournaments and consistently reaching the finals. Their hard work and dedication culminated in a memorable victory at the prestigious Markham Challenger tournament in 2021, solidifying their reputation as a formidable team.
The success of Northern Strikers Sport Club can be attributed to their exceptional team members and leadership. Led by co-founder and president Midhun Rajilan, the club’s director board consists of Ginu John, Krishna Dev, Ajith Kallachiyil, Basil Mathew, Bablu Thomas, Manu Sebastian, Nevil Mathew, Biju Balan, and Eldho K Paul. Together, this dedicated board has steered Northern Strikers towards greater achievements and guided the club through its various endeavors.
In addition to cricket, Northern Strikers Sport Club expanded its horizons by venturing into Igor cricket and forming a team for the Brampton boat race in 2022. The club officially registered its incorporation in 2022. Not only did they achieve the remarkable feat of finishing as runners-up in the boat race, but they also demonstrated their commitment to women empowerment by forming a women’s boat team. This inclusive approach showcases their dedication to promoting gender equality and fostering talent across different sports, with the men’s boat race team led by RJ Lalu.
With a growing team of 100 members, Northern Strikers Sport Club is continuously evolving and setting new goals. In collaboration with Malayalis Near Me, they are organizing North America’s biggest cricket tournament in 2023, further establishing their status as pioneers in the cricketing community. Additionally, they are preparing to participate in the highly regarded Mississauga Cricket League, where they will face the challenges of playing with a hard ball. To manage the team effectively, Northern Strikers form a dedicated committee each year, ensuring the best possible performance on the field.
