About 80 school children from local primary schools have attended an event supported by Doncaster Council to tackle racism in sport and everyday life.

Organised by the anti-racist educational charity Show Racism the Red Card and hosted for the fifth time by Doncaster Rovers Football Club, the event at the Keepmoat Stadium gave the children an insight into racism and how to fight it.

Doncaster Rovers Manager Brian Flynn said: “There is no part in football for racism and events like this to educate young people are essential. We have to work together to take racism out of not just football but daily life as well"

The children looked at stereotypes and watched an educational DVD and had a chance to ask questions of a panel including players and Peter Davies.
