City's anti-racism work

York Citys anti-racism week of action proved a success for the Club in our attempts to raise the profile of our Minstermen Against Racism campaign and to ensure Bootham Crescent is racist free.

The Club received a great response to our anti-racism poster competition with over 100 entries from primary school children around the city. The 20 winners were given the opportunity to be ball boys and girls for our two anti-racism games, with their posters also being displayed around the ground.

Over the course of our two anti-racism fixtures City supporters were asked to sign up to the clubs anti-racism pledge showing their commitment to kicking racism firmly out of the game. With the help of Trust volunteers, 355 fans signed the pledge and the club hopes to collect more signatures throughout the season.

Citys new Minstermen Against Racism leaflet was also launched during the clubs week of action. The leaflet was funded by a Football Foundation grant obtained by the Trust to assist our anti-racism activities. The leaflets will be available to supporters throughout the season and will also be seen in doctors surgeries and police stations around the city.

Our anti-racism activities have already gained recognition and praise from the Football League, the Football Foundation and Kick It Out.

Thanks go to those City fans who helped 'make it happen'. In particular, Ian Hey, Sophie McGill and Frank Ormston.
