At Lincolnshire Cricket, we take the welfare of our players, coaches and volunteers extremely seriously. We are firmly committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for everyone to enjoy the game of cricket.

The County has appointed two welfare officers – Kathy Eborall and Helen Jones – whose job it is to liaise with LCC, Clubs and ECB on all welfare issues in Lincolnshire and to offer advice to anyone within cricket who need it. Should you have an issue that you would like advice on, please contact either:-

  • Kathy Eborall
  • 60-0292709415
  • 07743 429567
  • Helen Jones
  • 59-236C3B44B4
  • 07783 000371


To support Kathy and Helen in their work, each club across the county should have its own Club Welfare Officer who is nominated by the club and has attended the necessary courses:-

1. Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) offered by Lincolnshire Sports Partnership
2. Safe Hands Workshop (or the refresher), run through LCC by Helen.

Please contact Kathy or Helen directly to reserve a place on the next Safe Hands Workshop or refresher course.

Kathy and/or Helen are the first point of contact for all clubs, but if you have any queries which you feel cannot be dealt with locally, please contact the ECB’s Child Protection Team on 020 7432 1200 or email

DBS – If your club requires any DBS forms, please contact TMG on 0845 2513000 or email
