Our final award goes back to 2008 when Les Driver retired after 8 years as Chairman of CSCA. It was the early days of Cornwall Cricket Board and I asked then Chairman of CCB if he would consider becoming CSCA Chairman. He agreed to take the helm on a temporary basis for ONE year. He retired last year after 10 years of leading CSCA – so not such a temporary basis after all. During many of those years he led tours to South Africa and also West Indies. We are very pleased to offer special thanks and happy retirement to NIGEL SANDERS.
