Merthyr and Abingdon united against racism

Merthyr Town FC hosted their annual Kick Racism Out of Football event on Saturday for the visit of Abingdon United to Penydarren Park.

The Trust-owned club once again funded a pre-match event to support the campaign's message that racism is unacceptable in both football and the wider community.

Both teams proudly wore the campaig t-shirts and were joined by the referee's team too.

Kick Racism Out of Football magazines and badges were distributed to the 391 crowd. Young fans were also able to get hold of campaign wrist bands.

Merthyr Town FC would like to thank both Abingdon United and the Match Officials for their help in making the event such a success.
