And the Oscar goes to … Yorkshire St. Pauli !

Posted: July 11, 2014 in Football Campaigning, Rants in my Pants

I’m not a great one for awards – and I don’t really know why a football club like my own dear Republica Internationale FC needs to give internal awards – but I was really glad to hear tonight that at our annual awards night we’d voted to give a well deserved gong to The Yorkshire St. Pauli Fans Group  to recognise the brilliant work they are doing in support of refugees here in Leeds, and in providing those refugees with footballing opportunities.

Click on the link to read about most of the stuff they do – although the website does not blow its own trumpet too much about their support for refugees through the PAFRAS group – Positive Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

If only their screenings of St. Pauli matches could be live streams, then YSP would be pretty much picture perfect!
