Show Racism the Red Card - By Steven Mew

Brechin City FC is proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Cards Fortnight of Action. Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years as the SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 15 years ago.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC's work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 5th- 19th October, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend - Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

Chairman Ken Ferguson said "It is vitally important that everyone who decides to attend a Brechin City fixture can feel relaxed and comfortable at Glebe Park. The Club will not tolerate any racism or discrimination of any sort in or around our fixtures. If anyone hears of any such incident at any of our games please let us know straight away in order that we can deal with the situation accordingly.

"Football is here for everyone to enjoy with the result at the end of the game being the only thing that might sour the day."

Brechin City FC condemns all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
