Cricket Scotland was recognised for its achievement in getting young players involved in the sport and awarded for the best overall cricket development programme in Europe at a ceremony at Lord's. The award was for its work with Lloyds TSB, which sponsors its youth programme.

The award for the best junior programme in Europe went to Finland, not a country normally associated with the sport.
