Blues join racism fight.

THE Merseyside Coalition Against Racism & Fascism (MCARF) has joined with Everton FC in the fight against racism.

An advertising hoarding will be displayed at all Goodison's games in the coming season bearing the wording: Don't Let Racism in -- Kick it Out.

The hoarding, at the corner flag near the main stand and the Park End stand, will be seen by millions of people throughout the world during live games. The money for the hoarding has been raised by trade unions and sympathetic organisations including Ed Sweeney, general secretary of banking union Unifi, and Liverpool solicitors Begbies Traynor.

Alec McFadden, president of Merseyside Trades Councils and MCARF, said: ``I'm delighted to have been approached by Everton and given the opportunity to display our anti-racist message. ''
