NatWest OSCAs

The NatWest Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) aim to reward the contribution that volunteers make to the game. Established in 2003, the OSCAs form part of the ECB’s volunteering programme, which gives cricket clubs advice on educating, recruiting and rewarding volunteers.

The 2015 OSCAs were held at Lord's on Monday 12 October to reward cricket’s unsung heroes and recognise the contributions and efforts of grassroots volunteers from all over England and Wales.
