A March cricket club chairman has received an ‘outstanding services’ award at the East Region NatWest Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) Ceremony.
The OSCAs – established in 2003 – aims to “reward the contribution that volunteers make to the game” and forms part of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) volunteering programme.
March Town Cricket Club chairman Les Mills scooped the Outstanding Services to Cricket in Cambridgeshire award and was snapped with former England captain Graham Gooch.
16-year-old March club member Geoff Kirby won the Young Player and Coach Award at the Chelmsford ceremony while Les also collected the ‘Cricket-Force’ Award on behalf of the club.
Mr Mills is not only the club’s chairman, he is also cricket board secretary, a welfare officer, committee member, Fenland trophy league secretary, treasurer and umpire in the Cambs and Rutland leagues.
