Show Racism The Red Card

Barry Town United has been proudly working with Show Racism the Red Card since the summer of 2014.

As part of the partnership, the Barry first team squad wore anti-racism warm-up tops prior to the August 2014 friendly against Cardiff City FC, as well as before the Welsh League Division Two match against Chepstow Town at Jenner Park; a fixture that formed part of the campaign's annual 'Fortnight of Action' for 2014.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK's biggest anti-racism charity and aims to combat racism by enabling role models (and particularly footballers) to present an anti-racist message.

Delivering training to more than 50,000 individuals per year, the campaign has a particular focus in Wales on tackling racism in professional and grassroots football alike.

Speaking on the club's association with the campaign, Barry boss Gavin Chesterfield commented:

"As a coach and as a manager, I have zero tolerance for racism in football and I am proud to say that Barry Town United as a club holds the same values".

With the Barry squad aware of their responsibilities to Wales' biggest town, the club's 2014-15 Ambassador for Show Racism The Red Card, forward James Dixon, had the following message to add:

"My friends outside football are from a variety of different countries and religions. I have witnessed the effects of racism both in and out of sport and how it can impact their lives.

It is important we all stand together and unite against it; there is no place for racism in our game or society".
