The awards, which were organised by Cambridgeshire Cricket Board, were attended by a host of famous cricketing personalities, including ex-England captain Michael Vaughan and current England fast bowler Stephen Finn.

Alterton received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his services to March Town Cricket Club and Stuart Mills was recognised for his work as a young volunteer.

The ceremony was hosted by top commentator Jonathan Agnew, with speakers including Vaughan, ex-internationals Mike Gatting and Rob Bailey and England ladies captain Charlotte Edwards.
