The club received a complaint alleging that a post in a team WhatsApp group was inappropriate. As per the club’s procedures, a disciplinary panel was convened to consider all of the details. It concluded that the mis-spelling of a player’s name was a genuine error, and was not done with any malicious intent. The complaint was not upheld.
The club is very keen to protect its diverse and inclusive culture where everyone feels that they belong and can thrive and encourages club members not to hesitate to report any concerns that they may have so that the club can ensure that this continues to be the case. All cases will be investigated thoroughly and appropriate action will be taken in the event of a violation of codes of conduct or other disciplinary infringements.
