Volunteer Recognition

The Grassroots Cricket Awards

The Grassroots Cricket Awards (formerly NatWest OSCAs) are aimed at recognising those volunteers who give their time to the game of cricket – without these individuals the game would not survive.

There are eight award categories that will allow us to recognise and reward those volunteers in Middlesex that have made an outstanding contribution to cricket this year, be it a young volunteer who has gone over and above or a club that has excelled in opening up the game to a brand new audience this summer.

The categories are as follows:

Nominations need to be emailed to your Middlesex Cricket Area Manager. The deadline for nominations is 10th August 2021. Good luck to every nominee!

The ECB’s NatWest OSCAs ran between 2003 and 2020 to reward the valued contribution of volunteers to cricket as a part of their programme, which gives cricket clubs advice on educating, recruiting and rewarding volunteers.

2020 saw a record number of nominations in the Middlesex OSCAs and, after some very tough decisions for the judging panel, this year’s winners, are:

Lifetime Achiever: John Walker - Actonians CC
Connecting Communities: Harrow St Mary’s CC
Pro-active Leadership: Matt Rees - Teddington CC
#raisethebat award: Adam Frais and Jon Francis - North Middlesex CC
Young Volunteer: Tushal Nath - Kenton CC

Congratulations to all!
