Cheick Tiote – Show Racism The Red Card Hall of Fame
We are big supporters of this movement, although it does seem that some racism is starting to creep into the game of football again, which is a little disturbing.
Four managers are being inducted tonight, and it’s a way of thanking people for the work they have done for the Charity, and this is an honor for Alan Pardew, and also reflects well on Newcastle.
In fact Newcastle will be well represented tonight as one of the other managers being honored is Lee Clark, the former player and coach at Newcastle, who is currently manager of Birmingham City.
Former manager Sam Allardyce, now managing West Ham, is another manager being honored tonight. and the fourth manager is former Birmingham City and Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish.
Ged Grebby is the CEO of Show Racism the Red Card and had this to say:
“Our charity is celebrating its 18th year as a campaign and the support of football clubs is invaluable in enabling us to educate tens of thousands of young people across the UK about the dangers of racism.”
“The Hall of Fame ceremony will pay tribute to those involved in the campaign. We have a whole range of people, from comedians through to footballers, who act as role models in the community.”
“This night is our way of thanking them for their contribution and all the work they have been doing to educate children over the years.”
The Hall of Fame event is at the Speaker’s Residence in Westminster tonight.
