Yorkshire Vice-President and former Committee member, and Secretary of Sheffield Cricket Lovers’ Society since its inception 50 years ago, David Drabble has been honoured with the presentation of an ICC Centenary Medal by Chief Executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board David Collier.
When ICC President David Morgan visited the Society in November it was brought to his attention that David had been the Society’s Secretary since it was founded by he and his father in 1960 as well as giving stalwart service as a Sheffield representative on the Yorkshire Committee for 22 years.
The Society was delighted to learn that David was to be presented with the medal by David Collier during his visit on Monday, April 19. The ICC Centenary Medal recognises a group of people who are instrumental to the running of the game – the volunteers. They give their time for the benefit of others, and are crucial to preserving cricket’s special values as well as sustaining and developing the game at the grassroots and nurturing the future.
Ihe ICC are awarding Centenary Medals to 1,000 volunteers worldwide who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to the game and have gone beyond the call of duty in the name of cricket.
