Together with The Northamptonshire FA, Cambridgeshire FA and The Huntingdonshire FA are running a Community Roadshow on Wednesday 28th March 2018, 6.30-9.30pm at The Nene Valley Community Centre, PE2 9RE.
The event will be an opportunity for the County FA’s to raise awareness of the work currently being done with regards to Anti-Discrimination and Inclusion, but more importantly how they can get involved to support each County FA with tackling discrimination in the game locally, share developments and ideas in making the game more inclusive and accessible as well as increasing their awareness of how they can help shape future County Operational Plans.
The evening will be hosted by Dean Watson (County Secretary, Huntingdonshire FA), with support of Gary Biddulph (Business Manager, Northamptonshire FA), Joanne Bull (Facilities and Participation Manager, Cambridgeshire FA) as well as our guest speakers.
Rhys Chapman - Director of WONDERKID film - After earning a dream move to a London Premier League club, ‘WONDERKID’ Bradley McGuire should be on top of the world. The reality? He’s faced with callous friends, a hostile changing room, vitriol-filled messages on social media and, crucially, Bradley's having to deal with himself. The film highlights the key issue - why should his sexuality be an issue? www.wonderkidfilm.co.uk/watch
