Winners were announced at the second annual LCB Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) celebration dinner.

The event sponsored by Keyteq Presentation Services Ltd (Keyteq) and Thwaites Wainwright, was held on 2nd July 2010 in The Point, the new Events and Conferencing facility at Old Trafford County Cricket Ground

The OSCAs are aimed at recognising those volunteers in the recreational game of cricket who give so much of their time to the sport - without these individuals the game would not survive. The OSCAs dinner provides an ideal opportunity for supporting our huge army of unsung heroes, saying thank you and celebrating their success with them.

Winners Announced

Winners were announced for 10 different award categories for which nominations were received and short listed at a glitzy awards ceremony. There was also a Special Recognition award, which was kept a secret until the night of the ceremony.

Tony Crook (LCB Chairman) commented: “Congratulations go to the winners and nominees of the second OSCAs celebration. In Lancashire, we have thousands of people who have devoted their lives to cricket and I would personally like to thank all our volunteers in Lancashire cricket, not those just honoured this evening. Many thanks also to our sponsors and personalities who have given their time to make this a truly memorable evening.”

Whilst the LCB OSCAs Awards to volunteers took centre stage on the evening there was also some top drawer entertainment for the enjoyment of 900 guests. Dr Kevin Jones, keynote speaker, was as witty as usual and had guests ‘in stitches’ with his hilarious take on the inner sanctum of the medical world. M.C. and very talented comedian is Tony Jo, a member of the Grumbleweeds, kept everyone glued to their seats and kept the evening flowing. A big thank you goes to Mike Watkinson (LCCC Director of Cricket) for hosting the awards.

All proceeds from the evening will be invested back in to grassroots cricket across Lancashire.

Special thanks from all at the LCB go to Dave Hardman, LCB Cricket Support Officer, for organising a very successful OSCAs event.
