Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football is launched by the Commission for Racial Equality and the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA). A “10-point plan” of measures professional football clubs should follow to challenge racism is drawn up.

Keith Alexander on becoming first full-time black manager in Football League: "I’ve been very lucky to have a chairman and a managing director to whom colour doesn’t matter. We’ve had a lot of support from the local council. It’s a liberal-minded club. The fact that I am black is immaterial. I must have been the best person to have applied for the job, or otherwise I wouldn’t have got it."

Paul Ince on becoming first black captain of England in 1993: "I didn’t realise how I had affected so many people, not just in the football world, but kids who were struggling in life and had said I was an inspiration because it had changed their mindset on what they wanted to do in life and how they wanted to be successful."
