City Captain Lends His Support to Show Racism the Red Card Campaign

 

As club captain of the Scottish Professional Football League's newest club, I am proud to support the Show Racism the Red Card campaign's fortnight of action. Through our engagement with Show Racism the Red Card, all of the players and officials at Edinburgh City Football Club are committed to tackling racism both on and off the field and in our local community.

 

I congratulate the Show Racism the Red Card charity for the important work that they do across the UK to combat racism. As a professional footballer, I realise that I too can play an important role in presenting an anti-racist message be it in schools, the workplace or on the football field where I am continually reminded of the quote by the legendary Portuguese player Eusebio "Black or white, we all have football under our skin".

Jardine commented "Marc is a quality footballer who is vastly

experienced having tasted success in being promoted with Millwall but

more recently helping Yeovil Town to stay in the Football League last

18/08/2016 City announce partnership with Barnardos

 

Edinburgh City FC is delighted to announce its new partnership with the

charity Barnardos of Edinburgh.

 

This partnership will focus on engagement with local Edinburgh communities

to raise awareness of the need for more foster carers in Edinburgh, and to

encourage more foster families to attend local football matches.

 

Research has shown that a number of children in foster care have not

previously had the opportunity to engage, participate or watch community

football during their younger lives. At every Edinburgh City FC home game

of the 2016/17 season, two foster carers and their children will be invited

to Meadowbank Stadium to watch the game, meet the players and manager.

 

This partnership was formally launched when Michelle Strain and Hazel Melville from the Charity visted the team’s training session.
