Cricket Scotland is delighted to be shortlisted for the category of National Governing Body of the Year in the Team Scotland Scottish Sports Awards.
There has been success on and off the field in 2017 for Cricket Scotland, including two victories over Full Member nations and the women’s team reaching the ICC Global Qualifier, as well as a complete company rebrand and hosting its first Club Conference.
Cricket Scotland has been selected from a long list of nominations with judges narrowing it down to just three finalists – the other two being Netball Scotland and last years winners, Scottish Athletics.
A host of Scotland’s top athletes will be in attendance on the evening, joined by leaders from the worlds of sport and business for the ‘Scottish Sporting Oscars,’ a celebration of the stunning achievements of individuals, schools, clubs and teams across the whole of Scottish sport.
Cricket Scotland Chair Tony Brian commented, ” I am delighted and proud that Cricket Scotland has been shortlisted for the Team Scotland Governing Body of the Year Award. It is great that others recognise the progress we have made as a sport and as a governing body in the past few years. This has been not just in improving participation numbers and the performance of our international teams on the world stage but also in how we have sought to make cricket a much more inclusive sport which actively seeks to play its part in addressing Scotland’s social challenges.”
The award is Awarded to the governing body that, relative to their size and resources, shows innovation, good governance and growth, partnerships with public and commercial partners and delivers integrated programmes between national and local levels.
This special night of inspiration and entertainment will be hosted by award winning television presenter Hazel Irvine and comedian Fred MacAulay and feature an exclusive live interview with Scotland’s most successful female Olympian, rower Katherine Grainger on September 21.
