Wanstead and Snaresbrook Cricket Club


Thrilling victory for tourists in last game!
The Sri Lankan tour party achieved a thrilling victory in their last game against the Foundation of Goodness. The opposition scored a formidable 181 in their 20 overs although the highlight of the innings was a tremendous catch by Natasha Mangalage. In reply Arfan Akram and Jack Lord got the innings off to a great start with a stand of 119 off 12 overs before Jack was out for 32. Adnan Akram went on to score a scintillating 98 before Nirali Hathi hit the winning run in the last over. A great way to end what has been a truly amazing tour.
Club receives ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years

Fantastic news, the club has received ECB Clubmark accreditation for another 3 years.

ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs and shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria. This is done by loading evidence onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by an allocated Club Support Officer. Special thanks must go to Trevor Hebden who put in over 200 hours of work on this!

2018-22 Development Plan

A committee under the chairmanship of Matloob Piracha and Len Enoch has prepared a report following a comprehensive members’ survey.  I would like to thank them for all their hard work. Click on the link below to read the report.

By most measures your club has achieved a high level of success over many years. Its progress in adult, women and junior cricket and its exciting community initiatives are widely admired; Wanstead is widely regarded as one of the best cricket clubs in the country.

So what areas can be improved, what steps are necessary to meet the changing environment for recreational cricket. Where do we go from here?

I hope you enjoy reading the report. Matloob, Len or I will do our best to answer any queries you have,

Martin Pluck, Chairman

Message from Essex CC Welfare Officer

Dear Sir / Madam

In recent months we have been made aware of and seen a number of emails, texts, what's app messages and other social media messages which have been sent to numerous people involved in cricket in the county and are potentially detrimental to individuals and the game.   

We would like to remind you that if you receive any communication that you think may be inappropriate, please do not respond to it but instead forward it or report it to the county welfare officer Phil Knappett at safeguarding@essexcricket.org.uk.

If you feel threatened by any of the communications or in any other way or situation, then please contact the Police on 101 or if the threat feels immediate then ring 999. Please then follow this up to safeguarding@essexcricket.org.uk too.

If you have any further comments or concerns again please contact safeguarding in the first instance.


Phil Knappett,

Essex Cricket County Welfare Officer

Club Welfare Policy and Practice

You are likely to be aware of recent adverse press coverage on child abuse in sport. At our recent Management Committee meeting I was instructed to reassure you that we have always and will always follow 'best practice' by adopting or exceeding  recommended guidelines. These requirements cover all aspects of the club including the football section.

Full details of policy and practice are contained in the club's Conduct and Child Protestation Policy which is available on our website, www.wanstead.hitscricket.com (follow left hand links via 'Junior Information').

The following summary may help to explain how we address this responsibility:
   - Welfare is the responsibility of the Management Committee which is required to approve policy and to appoint a Welfare Officer, who is a full committee member, with authority to manage all welfare issues and report to Committee members
    - Policy reflects the requirements of the relevant sporting bodies and practical issues such as safety, use of dressing room facilities, cameras and social media. Policy is continually reviewed and regularly updated on the advice of the Welfare Officer.
   - As well as approving policy updates the Management Committee is required to approve membership of a Panel of members recommended by the Welfare Officer to support the welfare process. These Panel members are the 'eyes and ears' of the Welfare Officer  through high availability presence (for example Lynn Rising who serves in the club house during busy junior events and Adnan Akram and Martin Pluck, who provide an important link in the introduction of juniors to adult cricket, are panel members). Some panel members have specific responsibilities, for example in ensuring compliance of volunteer police checks and attending safeguarding and first aid courses and monitoring policy and best practice developments.

Our current Welfare Officer is Trevor Hebden who is highly approachable. Trevor can be contacted in confidence on O7957 620075. As your club Chairman I am also available. Should you feel the need to contact me, my number is O7747 118790.

We want to maintain a safe environment for all members to enjoy their sport. We were one of the first clubs to obtain Clubmark, the sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs, and we continue to recognize the importance of safe welfare practice.

Best wishes,

Martin Pluck, Chairman,  on behalf of the Management Committee, 1st December 2016
