Every year, the Grassroots Cricket Awards recognise the efforts and achievements of volunteers within the game who really make a difference.
Today, we are delighted to announce the award winners from Middlesex in each of the award categories.
Clubs and organisations are encouraged to nominate volunteers who dedicate their time to helping the game succeed, be that through having a positive and sustainable impact on their club, organisation or association, having gone beyond the call of duty and exceeded expectations, or having shown their commitment and dedication to making sure the game thrives.
Without these volunteers the game would simply not exist, and Clubs across Middlesex have been busy over the last few months putting forward their nominated heroes in each of the dedicated award categories, which we are thrilled to unveil today.
Congratulations to each of the Middlesex’s Award winners, listed as follows:
Connecting Communities - A club or community organisation which has gone above and beyond to #raisethegame and support communities/groups.
Inspired to play – An individual or group within your club or community organisation going above and beyond to #raisethegame and open the game up to new audiences.
Growing the Game – A league volunteer, committee member, or administrator going above and beyond to support clubs and help increase the number of games played.
Lifetime Achiever – That one individual who has given many years of service to your club or community group and who you could not do without.

Congratulations to all involved and we wish each of the Middlesex winners all the best of luck in the national awards.
