The LCB is delighted to announce that our fifth OSCAs celebration dinner will be held on 19th July 2013 at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Nomination Form (64 Kb)
Judging Criteria (319 Kb)
The deadline for received nominations will be Friday 24 May 2013. A judging panel, as selected by LCB, will then sit in early May to decide the winners. The top 3 in each category will be invited to the dinner and the winner will be announced on the night. The winners in the highlighted* categories will go on to represent Lancashire at the NatWest OSCAs at Lord’s.
Every year, without fail, people that attend the OSCAs evening, probably feeling a little guilty, say they should have nominated so and so from their clubs, leagues or areas. Fact - we should receive far more nominations each year than we actually receive. I know just how many hard working members and officials we have out here across the County without whom the game would not survive. So this is a personal plea please. I fully appreciate form filling in is not everybody’s cup of tea because they need thought and time to complete. Please remember your volunteers are well worth the time and trouble you invest in making such a nomination.
We look forward to another fantastic awards evening at Old Trafford.
