Hokey Cokey Backs Anti-racism day

Hokey Cokey Backs Anti-racism day

Nigel Reo-Coker is encouraging Holte Enders to back tomorrow’s anti-racism day by holding aloft cards bearing the ‘One Game’ message just before kick-off.

Our match against Manchester United is our designated ‘Kick It Out’ day of action. We are celebrating the contribution made to the game by all communities, of all races, cultures and religious beliefs and are using the power that football has to make a stand against racism.

And Reo-Coker, our official spokesman, is urging lower tier supporters in the Holte End to remember to hold up the cards on their seats just before kick-off, during the official Premier League handshakes.

He said: “My message is ‘please hold up the cards.’ The game is live on Setanta so we can make a real stand against racism by showing the watching world what we think.

“The players are doing their bit by wearing the One Game, One Community t-shirts before kick-off so I urge supporters to join us with their card display.”

The special matchday will be one of 1000 events taking place across the country this month. All 92 professional clubs, as well as conference and non– league clubs will also hold activities to support the initiative.

Enlighten me KSarge1. What exactly does David Platt have to do with an anti-racism day?

I applaud NRC forgetting involved in this action, but is it the problem it use to be?
