ESCA Statement on the McKinney report

ESCA have now had a chance to review and digest the uncomfortable and disappointing findings of the McKinney report.

We unreservedly apologise to any individuals who have been subjected to any form of sexism, misogyny or any form of discrimination, irrespective of whether specifically under our jurisdiction or not.

Cricket should be a game for all, and any female in cricket – whether a player, official, volunteer, parent or all of the above – should feel welcomed and included. We are very clear in our stance that we will not tolerate any form of discrimination.

Whilst we can point to positive steps that are being taken, for now we need to listen, reflect and learn, and must acknowledge there is still much to be done to make cricket in Scotland, and specifically cricket in the East, more inclusive and remove all forms of discrimination. We must unite to tackle these issues and eradicate them from not just our sport, but also from our society and are committed to work with Cricket Scotland and other key parties and associations, to ensure a vision of cricket for all is achieved.
