OSCA reward for volunteers

Clubs in Norfolk are once again being urged to reward their volunteers in the NatWest OSCAs.

The OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) are split into seven categories, with the winners in each category invited to a dinner at Lord's.

The Norfolk Cricket Board's cricket development officer Kevin Denmark said: 'This is a really great way to reward the work of all those unsung heroes whose efforts often go unrecognised. This is particularly so in the smaller clubs who often rely on the same few people to keep the club going and it is these people we would really love to see nominated.

'Absolutely anybody in the club can make a recommendation – it doesn't have to come from the committee. If you think you have a suitable candidate and are unsure what to do please contact me. It could be a league official or an umpire – anybody connected with the game is eligible. The aim is to top last year's number of 42 nominations.'

The seven categories are: Behind the Scenes, Young Volunteer, Officials Award, NatWest CricketForce, Lifetime Achiever, Leagues & Boards and Building Partnerships.

Nomination forms can be downloaded from the Norfolk Cricket Board website, www.norfolkcricket.co.uk and further information is available from Kevin Denmark on 07876 561388.
