Community Cricket Champions – April


As part of our Inspire, Reward and Recognition plan for 2023, we have introduced our Community Cricket Champions programme to reward and recognise those community volunteers without whom that game couldn’t do without.

These volunteers are recognised from within the clubs, leagues, competitions and wider community organisations for their work and commitment to support the game within their local community.

Between April & September 2023, we will be recognising 5 volunteers per month across the county for their contributions in a particular field including Grounds Maintenance, Women & Girls, National Programmes, Community Hubs, Club Committees and Leagues & Competitions.

As well as their monthly prizes, all the recognised Community Cricket Champions will be entered into a draw to win a coaching session at the end of the season with some members of the Essex Squads.

For April, our category was Grounds Maintenance, which is quite apt considering the weather that we have had over the pre-season and early season period so far. Selected by the Essex County Cricket Board Grounds Association Committee, our 5 Community Cricket Champions for April are:

Grounds VOM - April 2023

Congratulations to the above your fantastic contributions. We will be out and about across the county presenting the recognition awards to our Community Cricket Champions over the next few weeks, so please watch out our social media channels.

The May category will be based around Women & Girls Cricket, with the winner being announced in early-mid June.
