Kilgetty AFC Women showed 'racism the red card' at their recent training session, joining up with thousands of football clubs across the UK to support the campaign.

Organised by the side’s Captain Maisie Sherratt, the team wore red in support of Show Racism the Red Card's annual Wear Red Day on Friday, October 20.

They are part of a massive team who want to see change, with over 440,000 signing up to take part in the campaign.

“As supporters of this event, we aspire to be the best that we can be. Football is for everyone at Kilgetty AFC,” said Maisie.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity.

It was established in January 1996, thanks in part to a donation by then Newcastle United goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.

In 1990s Newcastle, Shaka was at a petrol station near St. James’ Park when he was confronted with a group of young people shouting racist abuse at him. After one of the group realised that they had been shouting at Shaka Hislop, the Newcastle United football player, they came over to ask for an autograph.
