2024 National Cricket Collective Volunteers Awards

|

It’s time to nominate your club's heros...

The 2024 Cricket Awards are now open for nominations. In Wales, we will have a series of winners across the categories that you see below, leading to a Welsh Cricket Awards Ceremony on 17th September.  From this, the Wales winners will be forwarded to the England & Wales Cricket Board as nominees for its own awards.

Without volunteers to make our game happen, keep it safe, sustained and growing, we have no sport. Please do take the time to nominate the special people at your club.  As a reminder of last year's winners in Wales (2023), please see here.

This year we will be celebrating The Cricket Collective, our local legends across 15 categories. We are also delighted to announce a brand-new category sponsored by Metro Bank – The Metro Bank Champion of Girls’ Cricket – for those championing girls’ cricket at clubs.
