Saints host anti-racism event

THE New Saints hosted a highly successful anti-racism event with pupils from Llanfyllin High School at The Venue @ Park Hall on Friday.

Some 148 schoolchildren and their teachers attended the conference, which was organised in conjunction with Show Racism The Red Card.
After watching an informative DVD about racism in football, the children took part in a lively question and answer session with ex-professionals Leroy Roseinor and Christian Roberts, as well as TNS trio Tommy and Danny Holmes and Craig Williams.
Roseinor was the victim of racist taunts during his career with Fulham, QPR, West Ham and Bristol City and gave a talk to the children on the causes and effects of the problem.
The day wound-up with a prize giving to the pupils who had been successful in a competition.
All the children also received information packs, a team photo of TNS supporting "Show racism the red card" and complimentary tickets for Saturday's game at home to Port Talbot.
