The 2019 NatWest PCA Awards is set to return to the Roundhouse for the third consecutive year and is anticipated to be the most coveted yet with it being the 50th awards ceremony for the Professional Cricketers’ Association.
The domestic fixtures were released earlier this week meaning the PCA can confirm the most prestigious awards ceremony in English cricket will take place on Wednesday October 2.
With the World Cup and men’s and women’s Ashes hosted on home soil, 2019 is expected to be the biggest year in English cricket in recent history. The NatWest PCA Awards concludes the summer with awards to recognise the achievements of the international and domestic season.
In association with the ECB, the NatWest PCA Awards is attended by a host of past and present players, sponsors and guests with a number of major awards throughout the evening.
With the main awards voted for by current professional cricketers, the Reg Hayter Cup for the NatWest PCA Players’ Player of the Year headlines the event, which was taken home by the imperious Joe Denly in 2018.
The John Arlott Cup for the NatWest PCA Young Player of the Year went to Ollie Pope in 2018 while youngster Sophie Ecclestone won the NatWest Women’s Player of the Summer and attention has already turned to 2019.
"The NatWest PCA Awards is the highlight of our event calendar, especially in 2019 with it being the 50th."
DAVID LEATHERDALE, PCA CHIEF EXECUTIVE
David Leatherdale, PCA Chief Executive, said: “The NatWest PCA Awards is the highlight of our event calendar, especially in 2019 with it being the 50th. It is always a great end-of-season celebration for everyone involved in English cricket.
“We are delighted to be returning to the Roundhouse in Camden, a fantastic venue to round off one of the most highly-anticipated summers of cricket this country has ever seen.”
All proceeds from the NatWest PCA Awards evening go to the Professional Cricketers’ Trust. As cricket’s leading charity, The Professional Cricketers’ Trust was created to support the lifelong health and wellbeing of PCA members and their immediate families.
The Trust looks out for players throughout their active careers and long afterwards, funding life-changing medical assistance, confidential helplines and educational programmes in England and Wales.
