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

Nice email from Chairman of Hornchurch CC

Dear Martin,


On behalf of all at Hornchurch Cricket Club, may I sincerely thank all your team and supporters who were present at our match on the 1st September.


As you were well aware, it was a crucial game, which resulted in us winning and therefore the Premier League. Naturally we were delighted to have achieved our first Premier League title to go with the two cup competitions.


I have been involved in sport for many years and although matches can at times be played in a highly competitive manner, it is always refreshing to have a drink afterwards and show respect for the opposition.


Unfortunately that day I could not be there, as it was my Ruby Wedding Anniversary, but, I have received such high praise from our players and officials over the way Wanstead conducted themselves when we won.


It says a lot about your club and particularly the players on the day, of how graciously they all acted, especially as they were of course disappointed.


Your Captain went out of his way to congratulate all, buying drinks and socialising, as indeed the other members of your team did.


In such a memorable season for our club, we will always remember that day, made even more enjoyable by the Wanstead Players.


From all at Hornchurch, a big thank you, you are all a credit to the game we all love. You should all be extremely proud of your players.



Kindest regards to all,

Jeremy West

Chairman of HCC
