Suffolk volunteers are honoured at Lord’s

November 18, 2019

FIVE volunteers from Suffolk attended the NatWest OSCAs (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) ceremony at Lord’s in October.

The five – Charlotte Oastler (Stowupland CC), Adam Coombes (Woolpit CC), Jon Wray (Stowupland CC), Clive Witherly (Stowmarket CC) and Alan Rogers (East Bergholt CC) – were nominated in various categories for their contributions to cricket in the county.

Charlotte was in the Young Volunteer (14-18), Adam was in the Young Volunteer (19-25), Clive and Jon were in the Heartbeat of the Club and Alan was in the Lifetime Achiever category.

There was the opportunity to have a tour of the ground including a chance to view the splendours of the Victorian pavilion including the Long Room, the home dressing room and the museum which houses the original Ashes urn.

A professional photographer was on hand to take pictures of the nominees with both the men’s and women’s ICC World Cup trophies. The presentation ceremony was hosted by Charles Dagnall of Test Match Special fame with guest appearances from England star Chris Woakes plus rising England Women’s star Freya Davies.

Presentations to the winners of each category took place between the serving of each course making for a relaxing lunch.
