Natwest OSCAs 2018 - Nominations now open
Wiltshire Cricket Limited is delighted to announce that it will be holding its annual Outstanding Services to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) ceremony on Friday 14th September 2018 at the Ceres Hall in Devizes. The evening will celebrate the outstanding work of volunteers across the county and will be run in combination with the Wiltshire County Age Group awards.
For club cricket, 2018 has been another busy year with many clubs engaging with ECB initiatives once again. For example, All Stars Cricket, Women’s Soft Ball Cricket, Cricketforce, Clubmark…. The list could go on. Each of these initiatives have been fantastic for the game but they each place an additional workload on the volunteer network within clubs who are already challenged with trying to sustain the traditional formats of the game that we all know and love. As a result, Wiltshire Cricket really encourages your club to take a look at the OSCAs criteria in order for you to identify whether there is a volunteer worthy of nomination in your club. The OSCAs are a great way that we can recognise the outstanding efforts that these volunteers give.
The 6 NatWest OSCAs nomination categories for 2018 will be:
- Heartbeat of the Club
- Lifetime Achiever
- NatWest CricketForce
- Officiating – Umpires and Scorers
- Young Volunteer
The OSCAs are aimed at rewarding and recognising the volunteers that the game of Cricket simply couldn’t do without and so the purpose of this email is to ask for your support in nominating individuals from within your club who you feel are worthy of recognition in one of the categories above.
Please read through the attached letter above in a bit more detail and complete the attached nomination form if you wish to nominate anybody. Apologies for the tight turnaround but the deadline for nominations being received is Tuesday 31st July.
Nominations can be sent to Pete Sykes at firstname.lastname@example.org
