RECREATIONAL: Outstanding Services to Cricket Awards come to Hove


The NatWest Outstanding Services to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) took place on Friday evening at The County Ground, Hove, recognising those special people that devote huge amounts of their time, on a voluntary basis, to delivering recreational cricket.

Over 150 volunteers from around Sussex were nominated, more than ever before, including coaches, groundsmen, umpires, scorers, administrators and many more who undertake vital roles in clubs, leagues and other cricketing bodies.

The evening was hosted by Tim Shutt, Head of Cricket Development, and Television Broadcaster Matt Lorenzo, formally of GMTV and Sky Sports News.

Tim Shutt said: “In my opinion, this is the best night of the year. We are now moving into awards season where we’ll see some excellent playing achievements recognised, but of course these players are only given the chance to excel through the devotion and commitment of the vast army of volunteers that enable cricket to happen.”

All award winners have been invited to the National OSCA’s ceremony at Lord’s on Monday 12th October and they are as follows:

Officiating – Dorothy Hobden (Hailsham CC)
Heartbeat of the Club – Rob Wilkinson (Hailsham CC)
