Aberystwyth Town FC event, February 15th 2011
Our Welsh Campaign held their first ever event in West Wales with Aberystwyth Town sponsored by the FAW
More about this event...
Our first event at Aber was a great opportunity for the pupils to receive some anti racist education and for the club to promote the team; we will be working more closely with the club over the coming year.

50 pupils from Plascrug primary attend Park Avenue for the day, pupils had a anti racism workshop delivered by Education co-ordinator Simon Richards and Education worker Christian Roberts.
Pupils were fortunate to have a tour of the Park Avenue stadium during their lunch and heard stories from the club about their history and games this season.
In the afternoon pupils watched the SRtRC DVD and had the opportunity to ask questions to players from both the men and women’s first team along with players from the university who were:
Steffan Edwards, (Men's team) Leanne Bray, (Women's team) Daniel Thomas (Youth team) Mathew John Wallace (student team)
Pupils that asked the best questions received players signed photos from a previous game and a recent signed match ball by the whole first team squad.
SRtRC would like to thank the school for attending, the players for supporting the event and the club for organising the occasion.
