Along with many other clubs from the region, representatives from Willoughby CC were invited to Edgbaston for the Warwickshire County Cricket Board’s annual ECB Natwest OSCAs ceremony, which recognise outstanding services to cricket at club and grassroots level.

Following another of their hugely successful Natwest Cricketforce events at the club in April - which saw members aged between seven and 70 turn out to work on the ground and pavilion, Willoughby CC have been awarded the honour of the WCB’s Natwest Cricketforce Club of the Year.

This award is normally reserved for the Focus Club in the county, however, based on the promotion and coverage prior to, during and after the event and level of support Willoughby received both from club members and also external sponsors and partners, it was felt they more than merited the award over all other clubs throughout the county.

As a result of picking up this award, Willoughby have been invited to attend the national ECB Natwest OSCAs at Lords in London at the end of the month.
