The Lancashire and Cheshire AFL, a football league with a diverse membership condemns and abhors any form of discrimination, typified by the racism England footballers have been subjected to, especially after the way our England team have lifted and galvanised this country in the face of a life stealing pandemic.
We all need to do more to eradicate this type of behaviour from a small minority who hide behind a computer screen or deface a mural late at night.
We call upon the authorities and social media companies to do more, and as individuals we will do more ourselves to enjoy our national sport and treat it for what it is “a game”.
Footballers are human and like us all they fail and lose, but let’s lose and win together.
The league Diversity & Inclusion group will debate this and other issues at a date to be announced, so please look out for the invitation to join us.
