The next award is for the „Development Project of the Year“ and this year it goes to the HCV, the cricket board for the Hessen Region.
This season has seen the formation of a fully functional youth league with ten teams taking part with almost all clubs in the region putting out teams at Under 16 level. The league was won by Offenbacher CC in a thrilling final day win over Hattersheim CC at the Frankfurt Cricket Ground.
The success of the league is down to the positive attitude of the HCV board, especially youth officer Jawed Khan, and the fact that most clubs have bought into this vision.
The HCV will be honoured at this year’s AGM in a few weeks.
