A future where institutional and individual racism no longer exists in Cricket in Scotland.
Who Are We?
A group of cricket lovers – players, administrators and fans – that want the current coverage on cricket in Scotland to lead to changes in the way our institutions are run, so that racism of all forms in cricket can be eradicated. We want to be part of the solution, and to have our say in what happens next. We currently do not have adequate representation in all the different areas that decisions are made, and have therefore created this group and associated campaign, outlining the initial steps that we believe need to be taken to start us all on this journey.

That a date is published by Cricket Scotland, on which the first cases referred for investigation from Plan4Sport will take place.
