Non-League side Altrincham will make football history this weekend (February 16th) when players wear a rainbow- coloured kit based on the LGBT flag.

Their usual red and white stripes are being ditched for their home game against Bradford Park Avenue.

It's all part of the fight against homophobia in the sport.

Goalkeeper Andrew Jones says the move is long overdue.
