White Ribbon FC needs you

A number of former professional footballers will pull their boots on again next month to help raise awareness of violence against women. The ex-Dundee United and Dundee FC players will face each other in a game as part of Dundee Women's Festival. Originally scheduled to take place in December to mark the United Nation's 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women, the fixture fell prey to bad weather.

Already confirmed for the match are former Tangerines David Bowman, David Hannah, Jamie McCunnie and Ian Jenkins as well as ex-Dark Blue Graham Bayne. A number of local bodies including Tayside Police and Dundee City Council will be providing players, however there will be space available on the day for anyone who wants to take part. White Ribbon Scotland hopes to put on a good display so if you would like to show your support for the campaign by taking part in the match you would be more than welcome.

Taking place at Dundee University playing fields at Riverside, the match will kick off at 4pm on Monday March 14th. All are welcome to spectate at the match; if you would like to take part we would be delighted to include you. Please get in touch at or call 07563 774 525.
