Kick It Out

Wingate & Finchley FC will be part of an anti-discrimination message next month as the Ryman League embarks on a weekend-long drive to support Kick It Out. Kick It Out works throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and work for positive change. The Blues’ home game against Thurrock has been moved to 1pm on Sunday 10th March as part of an initiative involving non-league clubs. There is one match from each of the three Ryman divisions being staggered over the weekend, and the Summers Lane club was specifically selected for involvement as the Premier Division representative on the back of their continued work in the community, particularly with marginalised and hard to reach groups.

Community Development Manager Mike Bayly commented: “Wingate & Finchley FC is proud of its Anglo-Jewish roots, and has been at the forefront of promoting inclusive football for people of all ages, regardless of background or ability. We are delighted to have been chosen to participate in this event and are looking to organise a pre-match 6-a-side football tournament at our ground consisting of local primary schools across the religious and cultural spectrum. Football at this level is very much about engaging with the local community in a meaningful way, an ethos our volunteer staff continue to work towards” The club is hoping for a bigger than usual crowd on the day, and are planning other initiatives and events for local fans to sample.


Further information, including entrance details for the schools' football tournament, can be obtained by emailing mike@wingatefinchley.com

Lastly, with the added factor of the match taking place on Mothers' Day, we are welcoming all mums to the match free of charge!
