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.

Each year the ECB invites each of the County Cricket Boards winners of the below categories to Lords for an afternoon of fun for everyone where the national winners are also presented.

Natwest OSCAs 2016

The 2016 NatWest OSCA’s will once again be held at Lords in October and to nominate someone please contact your local County Cricket Board who will explain the nomination process that they operate. Please note that in some cases this will already have closed for the 2016 nominations.

This year's judging panel had a huge task in confirming a shortlist for each category as the standard of nominations was so high, with standout contributions to the game from all nominees. The final shortlist is included below. 

The 2016 Heartbeat of the Club award is in partnership with Hardys, an Official Supporter of the NatWest OSCAs.
