Show Racism the Red Card concluded an extremely busy season with a trip to White Hart Lane where Tom Huddlestone and Jon Obika came to discuss the issue of racism...
England Under 21 international, Tom, and last season's top scorer at the Spurs Academy, Jon, were joined by Show Racism the Red Card's Leroy Rosenior to take questions from the Year Five pupils who attended from four local primary schools. Also sitting on the panel was Matt Ancell from the Metropolitan Police, sponsors of lots of Show Racism the Red Card's posters.
Watching the Show Racism the Red Card film prompted the young people to ask lots of pertinent questions around the subject of racism, with the prize for the best question going to a young man named Jordan who asked 'why would fans be racist towards a player on their own team?'
Jordan's prize was a Tottenham Hostpur football generously donated by the club, which Jon and Tom were happy to autograph.
Thanks go to Tony Stevens and Fola Salako for all their help in organising the day.
