Essex Cricket will be working with Katharine Newton QC as it prepares to begin the independent investigation into the recent historic allegations of racism involving the Club.
Katharine has over 20 years’ practice in employment law and notably led the investigation into the allegations of race discrimination and bullying against the manager of the England Women football team in 2017.
Essex Cricket reiterated that the Club has a zero-tolerance policy towards racism and any form of discrimination.
“The appointment of such an eminent legal figure underscores the Club’s determination that all allegations, regardless of when they took place, will be investigated thoroughly and independently”.
William Meade (Senior Clerk)
