Fortnight of Action 2015 – Scotland

Welcome to Show Racism the Red Card’s annual Fortnight of Action. The 2015 Fortnight of Action will unite Scottish football in making a stand against racism. We believe that it is vital to highlight the anti-racism message at this time, in conjunction with Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE).

All professional clubs will make a stand against racism over one weekend whether at home or away. We have coordinated the participation of the clubs’ actions to make it the biggest and most high profile fortnight so far.

At every SPFL game on Friday 16th, Saturday 17th, and Sunday 18th October, clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and in society. Players in over 40 European countries are involved in similar events as part of the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network against racism and discrimination.

Show Racism the Red Card has received excellent support from football clubs, football authorities and football fans over the length and breadth of Scotland - we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. We have heard of many instances where supporters have been proactive in promoting the anti-racism message, making it clear that racism and discrimination are not welcome at their club. We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPFL, said: “Football is a powerful medium to break down barriers and promote tolerance. Our clubs have supported Show Racism the Red Card since season 2003/04 and once again, this united action in support of the campaign sends out the positive message that football is a game to be enjoyed by all."

The campaign will continue to speak to all football clubs, the football authorities and the police to eradicate all forms of racist behaviour.

The SPFL and its clubs deplore all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated at SPFL.

This year the campaign has continued to develop partnerships with local authorities to deliver educational workshops combined with football coaching sessions in a number of regions. The workshops are delivered by a dedicated team of education workers and ex-professional footballers, providing a very positive method of educating our young people about the negative impact racism has on Scottish society.

Here’s a brief outline of what’s taking place during the Fortnight of Action this year:

  • Anti-racism football festivals and projects across Scotland.
  • Show Racism the Red Card actions at SPFL, Scottish Women’s Premier League, Scottish Women’s Football League, Scottish Junior Football matches.
  • ‘Unite Against Racism’ actions at UEFA Champions League fixtures.
  • Educational workshops in schools and community groups across Scotland.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world, and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in stamping out racism in football and society.

If you see or hear racism or sectarianism at any level of football, please report it to the stewards or police.

Our website also includes updates on Fortnight of Action events and more information on the Show Racism the Red Card campaign in Scotland.

Ladbrokes League 1

Saturday 26th September 2015

 

On Saturday Jim McInally takes his Peterhead side to take on league leaders Ayr United at Somerset Park. High flying Ayr have won their last 3 games and are unbeated in 7 league 1 games. Peterhead are without a win in their last 4 matches which leaves the Bloo Toon in 7th position with 9 points.

Scott Ross is suspended after his sending off against Brechin and whilst Jordon Brown is recovering well from his ankle injury he remains doubtful for Saturdays match. Jim McInally said " It is no surprise to me that Ayr are at the top of the table as they have signed some quality players and I'm sure they will be in the mix at the end of the season. For our part we must cut out the individual errors which have cost us dearly over the last few weeks."

In the last meeting between the sides Peterhead ended up winning the match by four goals to two with Jordon Brown (2) Andy Rodgers & Gary McDonald scoring for the Bloo Toon, to read the full match report from this game follow the link http://www.peterheadfc.com/matches/item/1144-ayr-2-peterhead-4

Head to Head (at Somerset Park):

Ayr United Wins - 2  Draws - 6  Peterhead Wins - 6


We would advise Peterhead supporters that they can receive £2 off admission if they bring their 2015/16 season ticket - adults only.

Ryan Baptie Loan Deal

Peterhead FC have just agreed the loan of defender Ryan Baptie to Edinburgh junior side Linlithgow Rose FC. The ex Inverness Caley Thistle & Hibs player has been farmer out until the 5th October.

Supporters attending Saturdays match versus Dunfermline Athletic may have been aware of an incident in the club car park where a person received emergency medical treatment. A person was reported as having collapsed and following quick action from Peterhead FC officials and the professionalism from Dunfermline Athletics’ Physiotherapist Kenny Murray the person was resuscitated using the clubs defibrillator.

A defibrillator is a portable machine that can diagnose and treat life threatening cardiac conditions through the application of electrical therapy that allows the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.

In 2009 the Scottish Football League funded ‘Fit for Football Fit for Life' campaign, where Peterhead FC along with every other member club in the league were provided with a defibrillator and training in their use, this significantly added to the basic first aid that the club can already provide.

The latest update on the person is that they are responding to treatment and all at Peterhead FC wish them a full and speedy recovery. The Club also wishes to express its gratitude to Dunfermline’s Kenny Murray for all his assistance during the incident.

Scott Ross Incident

Scott Ross has received a 2 game ban after a spitting incident during the match on Sunday versus Rangers.

The PFC board have reviewed the video evidence and spoken with the player. It is clear that Scott did spit in the general direction of Rangers player Nicky Law and Scott admits that he did spit, but it in no way was it intentionally directed towards Nicky Law and is making every effort to speak with Nicky to apologise for the misunderstanding.

Peterhead FC regardless of the circumstances, cannot condone spitting in any way and although we accept Scott’s explanation; he has fallen below the level of behaviour we expect, and has been fined under the clubs disciplinary code of conduct.
