Canaries show youngsters how to tackle racism

CITY players Johnny Howson and Simeon Jackson joined Show Racism The Red Card at Carrow Road to teach youngsters about the dangers of racism.

The players were joined by hundreds of youngsters from Norfolk high schools including Swaffham Hamond's High, Springwood High, Framingham Earl High, Ormison Victory Academy, Diss High and The Open Academy.

During the event young people took part in a range of anti-racism activities, talked to Norfolk Police about hate crime and other workshops. They then had a chance to pose their questions to the players.

The event is one of three big events being held at Barclay’s Premier League clubs in England by Show Racism The Red Card. Footballers and young people will also be joining the campaign at Aston Villa’s Villa Park and the Stadium of Light at Sunderland AFC.

Chief Executive of Show Racism The Red Card Ged Grebby said: “We’re delighted to be visiting Carrow Road.

“We believe education is vital in tackling inter-generational racism and we hope the players have a positive impact on the young people of Norfolk.

“The support that Norwich City FC has provided shows their commitment to tackling racism in football and society.”
