Q: I am updating CRB checks for my club (in my CWO role) and have been asked again about relevance of checks obtained from other sources. The club has a number of teachers and headmasters who obviously have checks as part of their role. Can these be used for the cricket club as well? (I think I recall that the checks must be obtained specifically through cricket sources). Your reply would be appreciated. Many thanks, Phil (Black Country).
