Colts Teams


Welcome to the Colts

The Old Albanian Colts, encompassing both the u17 & u18 age groups, is a long term commitment to develop young players and make them feel part of the broader Old Albanian Rugby Football Club. In particular we will:Β 

  • Provide all players with an equal opportunity to play, to develop and to enjoy themselves. This is equally true whether they want to enjoy a social game of rugby with their mates, or whether they want to develop their rugby to play at the highest level they possibly can.
  • Provide a controlled and sustainable pathway for Colts players to have the opportunity to play for OA’s senior teams at the most appropriate level, if and when they wish to do so.
  • Provide a more consistent coaching approach and philosophy.
  • Strengthen the day-to-day links between the Colts and Seniors.


In season 2016-17 both the under 17 and under 18 A teams won the HML League Division 1 titles. They both reached the County Cup finals as well. However the under 17s lost in the final while the under 18s beat Hertford on their home turf to lift the cup.

The under 17 Colts were entered in the last ever under 17 National Plate competition. We won the South East Regional final against Marlow at Ruislip. That took us to the National semi final at Henley where Amersham & Chiltern were soundly beaten by 34-12. The final was played at Worcester Warriors Sixways Stadium on Sunday 30th April where we were beaten by a very good team from Chester RFC. It was still a great day out for all the players and supporters. In the previous season the Colts narrowly lost in the quarter finals of the under 18 National Cup.
When we reached the quarter finals this time we were drawn at home to a strong Lutterworth side. A thrilling game at Woollams saw us victorious by 12 points to 5. The draw for the semi-final saw us having to make the long trip to York. The players and coaches travelled up the night before to help preparations. Β
