Congratulations to our very own Elliott McPherson who has been nominated for an OSCA (Outstanding Services to Cricket Award), an award ceremony held by Surrey County Cricket Club, to recognise the hard work that he has put in at Woking and Horsell this season. OSCAs are awarded in a range of categories to highlight the many hours of voluntary work done across the county.

Elliot has been nominated as a Young Volunteer (14-18 year old category). His nomination is as follows:

“Elliott is still only 17 years old, but for the past three years has been helping to coach the younger children, regularly supporting their training on a Friday night, before his own training starts. He is often seen playing kwik cricket with the younger kids well after training has finished.    He has started to play open age cricket in the past two years and this season took on the captaincy of our Sunday team, who have also entered the T20 Sunday Slam, alongside 40 over matches. He is the youngest regular captain in the club's history and already making his mark as both captain and player. He is regularly playing in our Saturday 2nd XI too.     Elliott lives and breathes cricket. It is rare not to see him at the club on any night where there is cricket. If he isn't playing or coaching, he can be found watching. He is definitely one of our key clubmen already, despite his tender years.”

The award ceremony takes place on Sunday 18 August at the Kia Oval. We wish him the very best of luck.
