“I first encountered the work of Show Racism the Red Card as a fresh-faced news reporter for the Newcastle Journal and was immediately impressed by the passion, zeal and vision of the men and women behind it. I have been an active supporter ever since and have seen first-hand the excellent work they do and the difference it has made.

“Racism will, sadly, always exist and society, as well as football, has been guilty of letting its guard down in recent years. However, thanks to the work in schools done by Show Racism the Red Card across the country, there will always be an anti-venom to racism’s poison in the battle for young minds.”
