Former Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and England U-21 Goalkeeper becomes SRtRC Honorary Patron
Show Racism the Red Card is pleased to announce that Matt Murray has become the newest Honorary Patron of the campaign.
The former Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and England U-21 goalkeeper has been a supporter of the campaign for several years, attending educational events. Matt recently agreed to join the list of SRtRC patrons having worked with the campaign at an event at Molineux last year.
Matt is also an ambassador of the Wolves Community Trust and there is a great piece on their website about his decision to be a SRtRC Patron.
Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive Ged Grebby is delighted that Matt has made the decision to become a patron: “Matt has been a brilliant supporter of our campaign. He first came to an event with us at Molineux in 2005, he had great answers for young people’s questions on racism and was happy to present prizes to winners of our School Competition. Matt was able to attend another event with us at the Club last year along with Karl Henry, Kevin Doyle, Marcus Hahnemann and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and was again inspirational on the panel. Matt is a great ambassador for the Wolves Community Trust and we are really pleased that he has continued his support of Show Racism the Red card by agreeing to join our Honorary Patrons. We will look forward to working with him in the coming months.”
Will Clowes, Wolves Community Trust General Manager is also pleased to see Matt sign up as a patron: “ Matt has done a number of Show Racism The Red Card events here at Molineux and has always impressed Ged and the team with the quality of his answers and his rapport with the young people attending the sessions. We have seen over the past few months that racism in football is still an important topic and the education of young people is vital. The work that Show Racism The Red Card does is fantastic and I am sure that Matt will excel in his role as a patron.”
Show Racism the Red Card will be working with Matt again soon when they return to the club for another event organised in conjunction with Wolves Community Trust in March.
