Taylor and Nordfeldt Show Racism the Red Card
18th March 2016
Swansea City team-mates Neil Taylor and Kristoffer Nordfeldt showed their support for the Show Racism The Red Card campaign at a special workshop at the Liberty.
Wales international Taylor and Swedish keeper Nordfeldt joined club ambassador Lee Trundle at the educational workshop organised by Show Racism the Red Card which also included a Q&A session about the subject.
The workshop, delivered by former Swans right-back Steve Jenkins, educated the youngsters on racism using interactive activities and discussions.
Using information they had learned during the day, pupils from Plasmarl and Clase Primary Schools adopted the roles of journalists tasked with questioning the trio in a mock press conference.
"It's important that we educate our youngsters about racism and the damage it can do to people," said Trundle, who is also a Show Racism the Red Card's Patron.
"The kids are our future and we need to get in there early and get them thinking about these things.
"On a football team, you have people from different backgrounds and religions but you are all one team playing together."
Established in 1996, Show Racism the Red Card is a UK-based anti-racism charity that aims to utilise the high-profile status of football and footballers to help tackle the issue.
Each year, the charity delivers training to more than 50,000 people in an attempt to kick it out of not just football, but society as a whole.
Trundle added: "I've been involved in these events for years and they are really important. It's great to get the kids together to educate them and get them thinking about language and what is acceptable and what is not."
