Pupils from our event at Mount Stuart Primary school featured as mascots for both of Wales’s matches in the Euro 2016 Qualifiers.
Show Racism the RED Card recently held an event at Mount Stuart Primary school supported by Wales International players Neil Taylor, Jonathan Williams and David Cotterill.
As part of the event 44 young people from the school had the opportunity to be mascots at Wales’s Euro 2016 qualification matches against Bosnia Herzegovina and Cyprus.
The action was part of the UEFA No to Racism diversity weeks and pupils were fortunate to have a full Wales kit and an anti-racism t-shirt.
Pupils were led out onto the pitch by Wales’s players that included Neil Taylor, Jonathan Williams and David Cotterill along with Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
Prior to kick off, in front of over 35,000 supporters at the Cardiff City Stadium, pupils joined their role models by singing the Welsh National anthem.
Campaign Worker Jason Webber said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for the young people to have and an experience that will live long in their memory. The Football Association of Wales continues to be a fantastic supporter of the campaign and is a key partner in challenging racism in football and society in Wales.”
We would like to thank the staff and pupils at Mount Stuart Primary school for their involvement in the event and taking the opportunity to be mascots, along with the FAW for providing this opportunity and continued support for SRtRC.
