Let's Kick It Out!

IT'S National Anti-Racism Week of Action In Football and here's a personal message from Hammers boss Alan Pardew.

"It's great to see the whole of football coming together to get behind Kick It Out's Week of Action. This is an important issue to the health of the game and the country as a whole.

"Sadly, we do not see many ethnic minorities coming to matches despite the number of black players in the game, and there is still an obvious lack of Asian players coming through.

"It is up to us to set a positive example and do everything we can to challenge inequality and ensure a level playing field. I am sure that we can count on all our fans to support the activities the Club has organised today to raise awareness of the week of action.

"Remember, all of us have a role to play."
