FA Alliance Statement | Taking The Knee

By Oliver Osborn

The FA Alliance Leagues have released the following statement this afternoon:

"The Alliance Leagues applaud the decision taken by the Premier League and EFL to collectively support all players, managers and individuals who wish to take the knee ahead of matches this season.

Taking the knee is an individual choice that many players wish to make as a way of peacefully demonstrating against racism, discrimination and injustice.

Consequently, the Alliance Leagues have no objection to players, match officials and technical area occupants taking the knee at their discretion.

Home and away clubs that wish to do so must notify their opponents and match officials as part of the match confirmation process, and if players from one club do wish to take a knee their opponents are under no obligation to do likewise.”

Where next?

Chorley Hope To Be Singing A Promotion Anthem This Time! If you were under the impression there couldn’t have been a National League North club going who enjoyed last season, you’ve not spoken with anyone at Chorley.
