Highland Football Clubs Unite in Support of White Ribbon Scotland

Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle will be showing their support for White Ribbon Scotland at their derby match this weekend. The players will be wearing White Ribbon Scotland tee shirts in the warm up and they will also have White Ribbon stickers on their strips.

Both clubs had agreed previously to promote the campaign for the New Year derby match scheduled for 2nd January which was postponed. Inverness Caledonian Thistle boss Terry Butcher said previously: "This serious issue needs all our support and we at Caley Thistle are 100% behind the White Ribbon Scotland campaign which encourages men to take a stand to end violence against women by taking a pledge at the campaign website.

Ross County manager Derek Adams said: "This serious issue needs continuing support and we at Ross County fully support the White Ribbon Scotland campaign which encourages men to take a stand to end violence against women by taking a pledge at the campaign website.

"We also support the excellent work being done by Ross-shire Women's Aid in this regard, well supported by Northern Constabulary which goes a long way to help highlight the problem."

White Ribbon Scotland are delighted to see both clubs take this public stance against violence against women. As football clubs take leadership in speaking out about this issue awareness is raised amongst supporters. White Ribbon Scotland thank both clubs, Northern Constabulary and also Ross-shire Women's Aid for their time and support.
