There is no place for racism at Somerset Cricket or across the game as a whole.
We take a zero tolerance approach to any form of behaviour which is anything other than inclusive for all, regardless of gender, race, sexuality or any other characteristic.
All of the staff across the County Club and the Cricket Foundation have been reminded of how to raise an issue or complaint through official channels and will be fully supported should they wish to do so. Any case reported will be thoroughly investigated as it is important that we learn lessons from the past and we welcome any information on incidents that may have occurred to help us do so.
We are listening.
All of us as individuals have a responsibility to continue to educate ourselves to be better on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion and the Club has already started a programme designed to increase awareness amongst our Leadership Group and with our partners in the Foundation, the Club will deliver a comprehensive training programme for new and existing staff in 2022 and beyond.Back to News
