Crosshouse Boys Club U14’s organised a visit to their club by past and present Kilmarnock FC players.
Crosshouse Boys Club U14’s who play in the East Ayrshire Youth League organised a visit to their club by Kilmarnock legend Gary Hay and ex-Killie striker Steven Naismith as part of the club’s support for the anti-racist message.
Crosshouse BC contacted Show Racism The Red Card after one of their players was subjected to racist abuse from an opposing team in the changing rooms after a recent match.
Coach Billy Partner said, “This is not about rounding on the culprits. Racism is something that we have never experienced at this level so we were really shocked” He went on to say, “We just want to send out a message that racism is not something that we will accept. The boys will proudly wear the Red Card T-shirts as a symbol of this before every match”
A spokesperson for Show Racism The Red Card said ”Crosshouse BC have clearly shown that they stand united as a team and will not allow racist attitudes to divide or de-moralise their squad. An injury to one, is an injury to all.”
