Hotspur Ladies FC supports the "Kick It Out" campaign and will
take part in the promotion of the Week of Action which starts on October
16th and finishes October 28th 2003.
The campaign seeks to rid the game off
football of the hatred based on the colour of someone's skin, but
Tottenham Hotspur Ladies take this further into discrimination on the
grounds of the religion, belief, sexuality or disability of the person.
The community that Tottenham Hotspur is
based in, is a multi-cultural one and therefore, it is only natural that
the team reflects that local society. Therefore, it is made clear
to players and staff alike that players are treated without fear or
favour and any decision is taken only on their ability to contribute to
the team rather than what their background is.
All the players will be wearing the
"Kick It Out" badges and the photograph below shows the club's
Under-10s support for
The club has a good record of inclusion
and there is every intention that this will continue, as they seek to
move onwards and upwards with any member of the local community who can
join in and assist that happening.
