More supporter-led foodbank drives taking place

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Fans on Merseyside will be linking up with faith groups this weekend as supporters continue to aid foodbank collections.

The Fans Supporting Foodbanks initiative, established by Everton Supporters Trust and Spirit of Shankly, will be asking supporters to make matchday donations once more at this weekend’s fixtures.

They will be supported by volunteers from the Jewish community as part of Mitzvah Day – providing opportunities for members of the Jewish community to get involved in the foodbank work going on around football. 

Spirit of Shanky’s Ian Byrne said: “We haven’t had much contact with the Jewish community so we are delighted with this development.”

The Fans Supporter Foodbanks group has previously worked with local Mosques.

Elsewhere, supporter-led foodbank collections will also be taking place in Huddersfield thanks to a partnership between the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association, Cowshed Loyal and The Welcome Centre.

#ICYMI: Taking the epistle

There’s always been a certain something special about Brazilian football, and even when it comes to clangers they somehow manage to pull them off with more panache, too. This passage of play from Corinthians versus São Paulo has a little bit of everything for the discerning #ICYMI devotee – a ludicrously over-confident goalkeeper coming a cropper, an outfield player falling over for no reason, and some ropey finishing, all topped off with that trademark excitable Brazilian commentary.
