Hammers back laces campaign

West Ham United's first team squad once again showed their support for inclusion in football by lending their backing to the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign.

The players used the laces in their boots in training at Chadwell Heath this week and posed for a group photo, adding to the support their have already given Football v Homophobia.

Hammers skipper Kevin Nolan said: "We are all supporting this campaign. As a team, we spoke earlier in the week about how we wanted to support it in the best way and we decided to wear the laces in our boots for training.

"All the lads are fully supportive of it and all volunteered to wear the laces in training, to help push the message that all forms of discrimination should be kicked out of all sports, not just football.

"We were all passionate about supporting it and we hope that it sends out a message that once again, there is no place for discrimination in football and all sport."
