We visited Merthyr Town FC to hold our first event with the club since 2006.
Young people from Troedyrhiw Primary School visited the Stadium for the day to learn about racism in football and society.
Prior to the event the pupils have been researching the topic and exploring the history of racism.
The morning session saw former player Steve Jenkins deliver an educational workshop with the young people who learnt about the issue of racism through interactive activities and discussions.
The main event took place in the afternoon; the young people had the opportunity to participate in some role play, where they took on the role of media reporters.
During the role play press conference the children had the chance to interview a panel of guests that included former Wales players Neville Southall and Steve Jenkins along with Merthyr Town FC player and coach Ceri Morgan and Les Barlow.
The panel faced some challenging questions in the conference and winners of the best asked questions received Merthyr Town match tickets and a SRtRC goodie bag.
Campaign Worker Jason Webber said “It was great to be holding an event at the club again and to see the young people so engaged with the panel of guests; we will continue to work with the club in the near future.”
SRtRC would like to thank Troedyrhiw Primary School for attending the event, Merthyr Town FC and the players / coaches that supported the panel.
The event was funded by the Big Lottery, Football Association of Wales and the Welsh Government.
