Norfolk volunteers recognised by NatWest OSCAs scheme

Some of Norfolk's volunteers were recognised for their contribution to the game as the Norfolk Cricket Board hosted the annual county OSCAs evening.

The NatWest OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) put the spotlight on the unsung heroes who work behind the scenes at clubs across the country.

NCB chairman Keir Hounsome presented certificates to the winners, who also received trophies from NCB president Derek Cousins.

The county winners will now be invited to a dinner at Lord's on Monday, October 22, when the national winners will be announced.

The Norfolk winners were: Behind the Scenes – Dave Caffyn (Bradenham), Building Partnerships – John Hansell (Narborough), Leagues & Boards – Colin King (Mid Norfolk Sunday League), Lifetime Achiever – Peter Thomas (Swardeston), NatWest CricketForce – Great Melton, Officiating (Umpires & Scorers) – Norman Bygrave (Swardeston), Young Volunteer – Robert Crisp (Swaffham).
