More about this event...


“Racism has no part in society at all – and at Watford this means a lot more, because everyone at the club feels that we’re very much part of our local community.”
- Lloyd Doyley

120 Young people from Field Junior, Nascot Wood and St Anthony’s Primary Schools visited Vicarage Road on Thursday 1st March for a fantastic Show Racism the Red Card Event where they had the opportunity to take part in an afternoon of enjoyable and educational activities.

The event was opened by the Chairman of Watford Borough Council, Councillor Lindsey Scudder who spoke about the vibrant diversity in Watford and the importance of respecting and valuing others. The young people took part in interactive workshops, watched Show Racism the Red Card’s latest DVD featuring top footballers and posed questions on racism to their footballing heroes including Watford players Nyron Nosworthy, Chris Iwelumo, Carl Dickenson, Chairman Graham Taylor and ex-professional footballers Paul Mortimer and Osei Sankofa. The young people participated enthusiastically and those who asked the best questions were awarded with tickets for a Watford home game.

“Racism has no part in society at all – and at Watford this means a lot more, because everyone at the club feels that we’re very much part of our local community,” says Lloyd Doyley, the club’s longest-serving player.

“Discrimination of any kind is wrong. As Watford players we know that and we’re happy to stand for the values of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign.

Sarah Soyei, manager at Show Racism the Red Card said “Watford FC have been very supportive of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign in recent years and we are really pleased to have had the opportunity to hold this event to educate young people and help them to understand that there is no place for racism in today’s society.”

“Thanks to a partnership with the BME Achievement team at Hertfordshire County Council We have been able to visit schools and work with over 4000 young people in Hertfordshire over the last 2 years. The workshops have been hugely popular and Thursday’s event was a celebration of the good work which has been undertaken over this period. “

All of the young people left with a goody bag of Show Racism the Red Card’s resources including this season’s Watford FC poster.
