CROWS TEAM UP WITH HER GAME TOO

Crows team up with Her Game Too anti-sexism initiative

Royston Town FC are delighted to announce a new partnership with Her Game Too, which aims to raise awareness of sexist abuse and behaviour within the realms of football.

The Crows join a number of clubs from the EFL and beyond to commit to the cause, creating further awareness to the problems faced in football by females as players, officials and supporters.

HerGameToo was founded by 12 passionate female football fans who are committed to growing the campaign with the aim of fostering an ethos in football in which women are welcomed and respected equally.

The non-profit organisation aims to create awareness, educate, research, develop a strong sense of community and create strong relationships with clubs, among much more.

Further aims include creating regular content to champion women in football (players, staff and fans), creating strong relationships with club trusts and communities, and having a presence at football grounds and sports bars to build a more welcoming environment for young girls and women as well as continuing to campaign against sexism in football and online abuse.

Royston Town Chairman, Steve Jackson, said: “I’m really pleased that we have been able to create a partnership with Her Game Too. To be honest it was a no-brainer for us to get involved in supporting the Her Game Too campaign and becoming official partners.

“We have all witnessed the enormous growth in the women’s game recently and here at Royston Town, we are committed to supporting our Women’s team and our female supporters. The ethos of the Her Game Too campaign aligns totally with our own core value of ‘Football for All’ and our commitment to making Garden Walk and safe and inclusive space for everyone.”

Lucy Ford, Co-Founder of #HerGameToo said: “We are delighted to be officially partnering up with Royston Town; they are a great example of a club with the community at its core and the work they are already doing is brilliant to see. We look forward to working with them to continue their great work.”
