Steve Goodsell, Regional Manager for the southern team
Welcome our new team members!
Show Racism the Red Card is very happy to announce the news that we have 2 new team members joining us in time for the autumn term. They are Leviathen Hendricks and Francis Duku.
Francis Duku is a current semi-professional footballer with over 18 years experience in the non league game. During this time he has played at all the top four levels in non league football, winning league titles, promotions, and many personal and representative honours, and is recognised as an influential figure in the non league game in the South of England by players and managers alike, and is a current ambassador for the nationwide movement of Non League Day. This was all achieved while carving out a career in Investment Management in the City of London with some of the largest investment management houses in the world which has provided him with many invaluable experiences.
Over the last few years he has founded the first ever players union for amateur and semi-professional sportspeople, called The ASPSU, and a general support service for all people involved in non professional sport, called Our Game to try and bring to non professional sport many of the benefits associated with the professionals. Through some of his personal experiences, he has witnessed and been affected by discrimination in its different forms, so with the opportunities available to him now, he has committed to supporting varying efforts to combat discrimination in sport, and now holds roles with Kick It Out, the FA’s County Anti-Discrimination Panel, as well as being part of the team at SRtRC.
Leviathen Hendricks is originally from New York where he was raised in a family of teachers. Less than a year after moving to London in 2007 he founded Phoenix FC in East London, an LGB&T straight-friendly football club. He's working on his Level 2 Football coaching badge. Leviathen works closely with major stakeholders on diversity and inclusion issues in Football and is a National Council officer of the Football Supporters' Federation.
Steve Goodsell, Regional Manager for the southern team, says that "I am delighted that the team has been joined by 2 people of such quality, who will both no doubt strengthen our existing diverse team of education workers."
