Jobi signs pledge
Reading captain Jobi McAnuff took to the pitch before our game with Sheffield Wednesday this past weekend to sign a pledge in support of the Football v Homophobia campaign.
The cause aims to unite fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and the Football Authorities in opposing homophobia and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) people in football.
Jobi said: “There’s no room for any kind of abuse or discrimination in football. I’ve been at this club for many years now, we’re all about inclusion and families – so everyone should feel welcome. Your race, religion, gender, sexuality…whatever it is, it should have any bearing on your enjoyment of the game. This is a great campaign to support.”
Supporters can find out more about the Football v Homophobia campaign by visiting the website: www.footballvhomophobia.com and can keep up to date with all the news by following the campaign on Twitter: @FvHTweets or liking the Facebook page: www.bit.ly/fvhpage.
