NoSCA welcomes the necessary review into racism within the game in Scotland, and along with the wider community has now read the recent Plan4Sport independent review into racism in Scottish cricket. We are shocked and disappointed at the findings, but we do acknowledge and respect the report. We wish to reaffirm our condemnation of all forms of discrimination, particularly racism.
NoSCA will be reviewing our constitution, together with our policies, and procedures to ensure there is consideration from an anti-racism and EDI perspective. The Executive recognises fully the need to act, and be seen to act, in a way that not only recognises the diversity of our membership but also our responsibility within the wider community.
We will work with our members and stakeholders to ensure the recommendations are embedded within our Association to improve the game we love, ensuring that we as a group, provide a diverse and inclusive space for anyone wishing to participate in cricket in Scotland.
We welcome the support of SportScotland and will participate in any way possible to move the findings of the report forward in a positive, supportive, and future focussed way.
If any of our membership wish to further discuss, we would encourage them to contact a member of the Executive Committee.
