Show Racism the Red Card Launches it’s 10th Annual Fortnight of Action with a charity match between ex-professional footballers and representatives from Scottish Media.
The match is being hosted by East Kilbride Community Trust at their facility K-Park in Calderglen Park.
Show Racism the Red Card coaches Jim Duffy, Steven Bell, Derek, Ferguson, Micahel Weir and Robbie Winters will be joined by a number of ex – professional players including Gus Mcperson, Iain Murray, Gerry McCabe, Davie Elliot, Jack Ross, Andy Walker and Michael McEneny in what is sure to be a great match.
Show Racism the Red Card run a Fortnight of Action each year with the aim of raising awareness about the campaign and the educational work that it does to educate people against the causes and consequences of racism and sectarianism. We ask that communities get involved in our Fortnight of Action and use it as a catalyst for year long anti-racism/anti-sectarianism initiatives.
We are for the first time at our Fortnight of Action Launch match having local school children come along to participate in a workshop and enjoy some fun and fitness coaching with some of the red card coaches. Pupils from Blacklaw Primary and St Hilary’s Primary will join us tomorrow at K-Park for their workshop and then get to meet some of the legendary Scottish players taking part.
