ROSENIOR INDUCTED TO HALL OF FAME

15 December 2016

The Albion defender was presented with a special award on Wednesday evening.


Brighton & Hove Albion's Liam Rosenior was honoured at Show Racism the Red Card's 20th Anniversary Celebration in London last night.

The Seagulls full-back was inducted into the Show Racism the Red Card Hall of Fame at the special event, which was hosted by Rt Hon John Bercow MP and took place at the Speaker's Residence in Houses of Parliament.

Rosenior was presented with his award by former Seagulls striker and teammate Bobby Zamora, and was honoured alongside Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, former England & Rangers striker Mark Hateley and current Sunderland Ladies boss and former Wimbledon midfielder Carlton Fairweather.

The Albion defender told seagulls.co.uk, "I'm honoured to be recognised by Show Racism the Red Card, and it was made even sweeter to be presented with the award by a club legend in Bobby Zamora - which was a nice surprise!

"Show Racism the Red Card has done so much to tackle racism and other xenophobic behaviour in the game. They have done this by aiming to educate young people, with the help of clubs and players - and they have made a huge contribution to football, sport and society in the past 20 years.

"There is still a way to go, but so much progress has been made in this time, and it is down to this type of action: educating people and putting the subject in the spotlight. I would like to thank them for their recognition and congratulate them on their milestone."

Zamora added his congratulations, saying, "Albion fans know that Liam is not only a great player for their team, but also a brilliant role model for any young person. He's a great ambassador for the game, and the club, and he thorougly deserves this recognition - and I was honoured to be asked to present him with the award."

The inductees were each recognised for their contributions to the anti-racism campaign, along with former Wales & Swansea City midfielder Steve Jenkins, former Wimbledon FC winger Lionel Morgan, former Reading FC defender Francis Duku, Liverpool Football Club, Rotherham United, Southend United and the Football Association of Wales.

The Vale of Glamorgan Council, Herts for Learning's Noah Kaindama, Buckinghamshire County Council's Yvette Thomas and Show Racism the Red Card Education Worker Manisha Tailor, were all recognised for their Commitment to Education - alongside other key individuals, with Jenine Abdo, Ali Abdi, Stephen Cavalier, and Norma Stephenson OBE all receiving awards in the Campaign Supporters category.

A host of names from the world of football joined guest presenters Ken Monkou and Lisa Rogers at the event and guests also included former England & Manchester City winger Trevor Sinclair, former Wimbledon manager Dave Bassett, ex-Albion midfielder Alan Curbishley, former Seagulls striker Craig Mackail-Smith and PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor.

Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive, Ged Grebby said, "This event is an opportunity to celebrate 20 years of anti-racism education & campaigning, and a chance to recognise the invaluable contributions of many individuals to Show Racism the Red Card.

"The Hall of Fame is a way of thanking some of our key supporters, patrons and sponsors for all the time they have given to the charity over many years."
