We are aware that a person known to the Club has been arrested for offences against a child unrelated to the Club. That person is not and never has been a member of the Club, he has also not and never has had any involvement in the running or organisation of the Club. The individual concerned has, with immediate effect, been barred permanently from the Northampton Casuals RFC and from any and all activities associated with the Club.
The safety of our children is and has always been the number one priority of the Club and, to this end, we continue to work closely with the RFU Child Protection Team who has confirmed that the Northampton Casuals RFC has comprehensive and appropriate safeguarding measures in place.
We continue to cooperate fully with the relevant authorities but are not able to comment further at this time in light of the on-going police investigation and we would request that members refrain from discussing this matter on social media so that the on-going police investigation is not hindered.
If you have any further questions please contact the Club via the website or, alternatively, contact Mr Richard Edmondson Head of Corporate Communications atNorthamptonshire Police on 101 ext 347126.
If you would like to talk to us about this please send an email to CP@northamptoncasualsrugby.co.uk and we will get back to you asap.
