The Downs Volunteer of the Year Award was presented by Julian Harvey and Mehboob Dharamsi of Downs Solicitors to Chris Nicolle, ex Cricket Chairman, at the recent opening of the new cricket nets.

Chris has been instrumental in providing a platform for the cricket section to grow to where it is in now, with the number of colts having training on Fridays and Sundays reaching nearly 200 and with a 1st and 2nd team competing for promotion in their leagues.

Although not a player himself Chris has always been a very enthusiastic supporter of the teams with his encouragement from the sidelines.

We thank Downs for their support as one of the main sponsors at OVSC and in particular for their support of the Downs Volunteer Award which celebrates the value of  all volunteers at the club.
