Social Media Abuse

A MESSAGE FROM THE HERTS LEAGUE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE. All participants in the Herts League are reminded that Twitter Abuse of SHPCL or its management or of any participant will be severely dealt by the SHPCL Disciplinary committee. This extends to all Social Media outlets. Please consider carefully before posting anything. All participants in the Herts League are reminded that the Code of Conduct and Spirit of Cricket applies to Social Media as well as on the field of play. The League has been made aware of spoof twitter accounts and messages sent between participants that bring the League into disrepute. Any participant following or commenting on these spoof accounts could be considered to be complicit in their content and therefore risk their own, or their clubs, further sanctions. It is easy for the committee to see who they are. Therefore, we ask anyone engaged in this activity to immediately remove any likes, comments and even follows for these accounts and their critical messages. Friendly banter is welcomed, but these sites go way too far and it simply isn’t acceptable. After June 1st anyone engaged in this activity, even if just following an abusive twitter site or person, will face League disciplinary procedures.

Information and Alert regarding Female Players in Open Age Cricket

A MESSAGE SENT ON BEHALF OF THE ENGLAND AND WALES CRICKET BOARD (ECB). Inappropriate and unwelcome behaviour towards Young Female Participants in cricket over the last few weeks has been reported to the ECB Safeguarding Team regarding sexual harassment of female players, either on the pitch through inappropriate language or ‘sledging’, and off the pitch via unsolicited text and social media contact. The ECB, through Club Welfare Officers, emphasise that such behaviour is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. No young women should receive such attention through taking part in cricket. The following should be brought to the attention of players and members of cricket clubs across the country: Members should be reminded of their own Codes of Conduct, and the guidance included in ‘Safe Hands’, especially ‘ECB guidance for clubs on the use of Social Media, texts and email’. Clubs should also be reminded that ‘sledging’ female players by reference to their body parts constitutes sexual harassment. Where any such incident involves an Under 18 player, this must be reported as a safeguarding matter and will be dealt with as such. Female participants should be encouraged to report any incidents of unwanted comment, attention or harassment to the Club Welfare Officer, who should inform the County Welfare Officer. Any concerns can also be reported at any time directly to the ECB Safeguarding Team at [email protected] Thank you for your assistance in making it clear that such behaviour has no place in our sport. Richard Desjardins Safeguarding Manager England and Wales Cricket Board. July 2018. ........................................................................ I should point-out that as at April 2019 Reed CC do not have any female players in Open-Age cricket but we do play against some opposition clubs that [...]
