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,

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

Fine National win by the U13s

On Sunday the U13s beat Copdock & Old Ipswichians U13s by 5 wickets in the London & East Quarter-Final of the ECB U13 National Club Championship.  Having restricted the opposition to 94 for 8 off their 20 overs, the U13s knocked off the runs with more than 2 overs to spare. The U13s now play Esher U13s at Teddington CC at Wednesday 1st August at 10.30am.

Sad passing of Bill Fretwell

It was with deep sadness that I have to report that Bill Fretwell has passed away. Bill was a member of the club for many years as a player, umpire and supporter. He will be sorely missed at Overton Drive.

His funeral is at 2.30pm on Monday 30th July at the City of London Crematorium.
