Cricket is a sport, like many others, which relies heavily on the volunteers that run it. From your club chairmen and groundsmen to the junior coaches and officials, there are many people who give up their time so that cricket can be played at local community clubs. There are also countless volunteers in the local community supporting cricket delivery in schools, community groups and informal settings. However, cricket is unique as the NatWest OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) are held annually to recognise the work, commitment and positive impact of these key individuals.
Leicestershire & Rutland Cricket are pleased to announce the 6 winners of the local NatWest OSCAs who will now be considered by the ECB for the national awards which take place at Lords Cricket Ground on Monday 11th October 2015.
