Tigers Non-League Day clash celebrates Kick It Out
10th October, 2018
Worksop Town's Toolstation NCEL Premier Division clash at home to Maltby Main on Saturday is one of seven nationwide that will be dedicated to the work of Kick It Out on Non League Day.
Football's equality and inclusion organisation is celebrating its 25th year of campaigning this year and is a partner of Non League Day for the seventh year running.
Worksop will join six other hosts - Southport, Tamworth, Sporting Khalsa, Edgware Town, Kensington Borough and Burgess Hill Town - in recognising Kick It Out's work and all of them will be planning extra activity around the day to encourage engagement with a diverse range of communities, including local residents, young people and more.
This year sees the most number of games dedicated to Kick It Out and the expansion comes following the organisation's appointment of a new grassroots team earlier this year, including Grassroots Manager Tajean Hutton and Grassroots Northern Officer Arran Williams.
Hutton said: "As someone who’s always been involved in grassroots and non-league football, I know how important it is for Kick It Out to have a presence there and spread our message of equality.
"Non League Day is a brilliant initiative all about getting down to support your local team, and we hope our involvement will help bring local communities closer together with their club, regardless of background."
