Introducing the Steelbacks Family

The Steelbacks family was launched last year as a way to ensure that everyone associated with cricket in Northamptonshire feels apart of the family.

You may be a local player, a club volunteer, one of our county players, or a Steelbacks supporter from around the world who only get to watch the team online, you’re all a part of the ‘Steelbacks Family’.

The name was introduced at the 2021 Steelbacks Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards with those honoured being the first acknowledged and recognised members of the family. Part of that recognition was the receiving of the exclusive Steelbacks Family pin badge.

We want everyone involved in cricket in Northamptonshire to have a safe, positive experience and be welcomed and supported in their activities.

Northants Cricket is committed to ensuring that all young people (aged under 18) who play cricket in the County have a safe, welcoming and positive experience. We comply fully with the ECB Safe Hands Policy – this is the England and Wales’ Cricket Board’s policy to safeguard children within cricket. It promotes good practice, helps raise awareness and ensures people know what to do if they have any concerns about children or about the behaviour of adults in cricket.


Children and Vulnerable Adults

Everyone involved in cricket, has a duty to ensure the safety and welfare of any young person or vulnerable adult involved in the sport. From prevention to protection, safeguarding in sport is Everyone’s Responsibility and involves keeping young people out of harm’s way both on and off the cricket pitch. It is not the responsibility of any individuals to determine if abuse has taken place, but it is their responsibility, and the responsibility of everyone within cricket, to confidentially report concerns to the relevant Club Safeguarding Officer, the County Safeguarding Officer, ECB or Child Protection experts.
