In recognition of the fight against Racism, we will join the sporting world in falling silent over our Social Media pages from 15:00 today until 23:59 on Monday, May 3.
Racial abuse on Social Media is not just an issue at the top level, it happens all the way down the sporting pyramid, down to grass routes level. Let’s face this together! We hope all of our players and their families know that we are here to support each of them and encourage them to report any issues to us as soon as practicably possible.
