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.

‘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.
