Nottinghamshire Cricket Board provides the opportunity to say thank you to the volunteers who work tirelessly for cricket through their dedication and to recognise their achievements in cricket, through the annual Nottinghamshire Cricket Board OSCAs awards.
Through the Nottinghamshire and national awards we celebrate the work of our volunteers with the range of categories ensuring that there is one for each of them. The national OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) are an ECB hosted event to which the winners from each county are invited to a high-profile awards ceremony at Lord's.
The NCB OSCAs is a fantastic opportunity to say thank you to those volunteers who give up their time for the love of our game.
