Shakers Spread the Kick It Out Message

11 March 2016

Two Bury First Team players took time out of their busy schedules to teach local youngsters about equality in sport.

Jacob Mellis and Joe Riley, helped to inspire the next generation by taking part in an anti-discrimination assembly with Chris Brass for Kick It Out.


Mellis and Riley visited Mersey Drive Community Primary School and took part in the assembly led by Chris Brass, who spoke about racism within football and his own personal experiences of the issue.


Chris, Jacob and Joe talked with around 200 pupils about the importance of equality in sport before taking part in a Q&A session.

Supporter Liaison Officer, Ben Miles, who was also in attendance, added "There is no place for discrimination of any kind, in or out of football.  The work being done in this respect by Mersey Drive Primary is fantastic and it was our pleasure to attend this morning to further enhance this message."

Bury’s nominated Kick It Out game is the next home game against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, 19th March 3pm kick-off.


The Club will be showing it's support to the charity by raising awareness throughout the fixture.
