No room for racism at ’Lie

Paisley Daily Express - - Theti Cket -

Arthurlie have thrown their sup­port be­hind Show Racism The Red Card.

The char­ity is in the mid­dle of the an­nual Fort­night of Ac­tion, with clubs of all lev­els back­ing the cause.

The two-week cam­paign aims to show com­mit­ment at the high­est level of Scot­tish foot­ball to erad­i­cat­ing racism and dis­crim­i­na­tion of any form from the beau­ti­ful game.

All pro­fes­sional clubs will also show their sup­port this week­end.

Clubs will be united in call­ing for an end to racism in foot­ball and so­ci­ety.

Play­ers in over 40 Euro­pean coun­tries are in­volved in sim­i­lar events as part of FARE net­work against racism and dis­crim­i­na­tion.

Neil Don­caster, chief ex­ec­u­tive of the SPFL, said:“Foot­ball is a pow­er­ful medium to break down bar­ri­ers and pro­mote tol­er­ance.

“Our clubs have sup­ported Show Racism the Red Card since sea­son 2003/04 and, once again, this united ac­tion in sup­port of the cam­paign sends out the pos­i­tive mes­sage that foot­ball is a game to be en­joyed by all.”
