FvH is a campaign uniting fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and the football authorities in opposing homophobia and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) people in football.
Our squads made up of staff, friends and sponsors took on Brighton Seagals the in the non-binary/female game and BLAGSS in the non-binary/male game, to highlight ‘Football For All’ and the clubs affiliation to us.
The matches themselves were both competitive encounters played in the true spirit of the occasions, with a win for each team - but the real winner was football and the FvH campaign!
The day started with a team of our staff and friends playing against Brighton Seagals. They are a group that originated from BLAGSS and run recreational sessions for women and non-binary LGBTQ+ players and allies, as well as a team in the Sussex County Women & Girls League.
Captain and club secretary Justine Thomson led the Seagals to a 7-3 win in a game played in three 25-minute thirds. A goal glut in the second 25 mins was what won the match and ensured that they retained the trophy, lifted by Sas Granville.
