The Awards were established in memory of Alan Albury, who was for many years the Chairman of the Association of Kent Cricket Clubs and subsequently of the Kent Cricket Board, now known as Kent Cricket - Community Team. He was keen to encourage those who gave time to work as a volunteer for cricket especially those who did so much for their cricket club. Thus the awards are given to those who have devoted exceptional time and effort in the service of their club over many years. The awards have been made since 2003.The winners are then entertained at a County Championship game at The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence in Canterbury and are presented with a framed citation. For several years now the presentation has been made by Derek Underwood and has been on Volunteers Day, where the NatWest OSCAs are also presented.

Alan Albury was instrumental in the development of Club Cricket across Kent. Alan along with his long serving counter part, Jim Cheesman both generously invested their own time and money into the establishment of what is now the Kent Cricket Community Team, including funds which extended to provide small grants and loans to recreational clubs to develop both revenue and capital projects.
