Elgin City have received great praise from the Show Racism the Red Card campaign for becoming the first club in the UK to have the distinctive red logo sewn on to their jerseys.
Scottish co-ordinator for SRTRC Billy Singh said, “It is fantastic that Elgin City have led the way in being the first professional club to have our logo on their jerseys. We are absolutely delighted by this and it would be great if all the clubs eventually do so.”
The Borough Briggs club are to be visited by Singh and his campaign members this month for a question and answer session on racism where first team players will be quizzed by local youngsters.
Singh added, “It is not your typically Q & A session about what is your favourite goal etc, it will be about how to deal with racism in sport and society in general.”
Elgin wore their blue away kit with the logos at Hampden against Queen’s Park on Saturday and won 3-0 with manager Ross Jack saying, “Our kit-man Kenny Duguid deserves great credit for the logos, he worked really hard to get them onto the strips and it looks great whilst also showing our support.”
