At the UK Coaching Awards, the special lifetime achievement award was presented in honour of the former England fast bowler Graham Dilley, who died in October. The presentation was made to Dilley's son, Chris Pennell, in recognition of Dilley's work as a bowling coach with Surrey, Scotland and England, and most recently as head coach of Loughborough University.
"Graham made a very significant contribution to our game as a coach," said Hugh Morris, the managing director of England cricket. "This award is a fitting tribute to the role he played in enabling so many players to realise their full potential at both domestic and international level."
