Secure your valuables!

We have had a potential ‘issue’ highlighted recently to The Committee.
At the recent 6 aside tournament, we had a report of a player’s kit bag(s) appearing to have been tampered with and a ‘possible’ loss of money. Understandably with isolated incidents it is hard to be sure since the amount ‘possibly missing’ was relatively small and it’s difficult to be certain if a bag has been opened…. or simply left open by the owner.
The 6 a side tournament was a busy day with many players from a number of sides as well as supporters of these teams - and for all we know people unconnected with any side. We are determined to ensure our cricket takes place in a safe environment and if an issue is raised with us, we will take it very seriously on behalf of our players and our valued visitors.

However our advice is:
• Secure your valuables
o We are looking at whether it is possible to secure the changing room whilst we are fielding. If not, we’ll look at whether it’s practical/possible to have a secure area in the bar area. Other suggestions welcomed.

• Keep an eye on home & away changing rooms
o Make a point of checking the room is locked when possible
o Don’t raise suspicions by going into either changing room alone
o Alert a committee member if you see anyone acting suspiciously

As a club, we have a (very) good record in this regard and are confident that if the above precautions are taken, that we won’t have an occurrence. We can’t of course be sure about external visitors or away venues. Let’s make a point of securing away changing rooms before taking to the field and keep vigilant for the benefit of ourselves and our team mates.

We are happy to explore further if required by any member and welcome feedback/suggestions.
We may (for instance) consider implementing a ‘code of conduct’ for all players but this will be driven by our members and players. Of course, if anyone has further information or concerns, please contact me in confidence.
