Cricket Collective Awards 2024

Nominations are now open for the ECB’s 2024 Grassroots Cricket Collective Awards – and we’re looking for the Shropshire winners in each category.

This year there are a total of 15 awards with a new category sponsored by Metro Bank for those championing girls’ cricket at clubs and the Coaching awards also included.

The winners of the Shropshire awards will go forward to the national awards which will be held at Lord’s at the end of the season.

The Shropshire awards will also be presented to the winners at the Board’s annual awards ceremony which will be held in November.

Cricket Shropshire Lead Officer Steve Reese said: “There are lots of volunteers and clubs across Shropshire worthy of nomination in this year’s awards, and we look forward to hearing about their stories.

“There is so much good work going on across the county to help promote the game and make it available to all – and we want to tell those stories.

“Please nominate those worthy individuals or clubs and we can spread the word about all that is good in cricket in Shropshire.”
