Wanderers to wear coloured laces

19 September 2013

Matt Bloomfield will be leading the Blues’ support of addressing homophobia by wearing rainbow-coloured laces at the weekend.

He added: “It's something that I have supported before and will continue to do so.”

Bloomfield, the club's representative for the Professional Footballers' Association, signed the Charter on behalf of the Chairboys ahead of the clash with Charlton Athletic in October 2011. 

Wanderers were the first football club to sign the Government Charter for Action, tackling homophobia and transphobia in the sport.

“It's vitally important that we have equality in football so everyone can enjoy the game no matter of their sexual preference, race or religious beliefs.”

“It's in support of a campaign to tackle homophobia in football and I'm hoping a few of the other lads will be joining me as well,” the 29-year-old told

Bloomfield and a number of his team-mates, including Dean Morgan and Matt McClure, will don the laces in their boots for the fixture with York City to raise awareness of the issue.
