Weekend Fixtures


Picked and cannot play? You NEED to cry off – certainly let your captain know, but the priority is to let the named cry off officer for the week know – he is the one that will coordinate players moving up the teams to cover your absence!

Rainbow Laces 22nd November – 8th December 2019

We have a large supply of Rainbow Laces to distribute to anyone who would like a pair. We have a suggested donation of £1 per pair that we will donate to Stonewall at the end of the Rainbow Laces campaign on the 8th December.

Over the last three years Rainbow Laces campaign has helped generate a huge amount of awareness around LGBT people in sport. 12 million people in Britain saw the campaign in November 2018, including 34 per cent of all sport fans. More importantly, Rainbow Laces has helped foster positive attitudes towards LGBT people in sport and persuaded allies to play their part. We found that:

•             59 per cent of fans who saw the campaign feel they have a responsibility to stick up for LGBT fans of the teams and sports they follow, compared to 44 per cent who didn’t see the campaign.

•             56 per cent of fans who saw the campaign feel more confident that reports of anti-LGBT language at live sport fixtures will be taken seriously.

•             After seeing the Rainbow Laces campaign 41 per cent of sports fans believe they would be more likely to challenge anti-LGBT language at live sport fixtures, and 42 per cent would be more likely to challenge it on social media.

By getting together to wear Rainbow Laces we can continue to set a strong example to fans, players, club staff and rivals, in the biggest ever display of support for LGBT people in sport.
