Black History Month 2019

Lancashire FA will be hosting it's first ever Black History Month event on 25th October

Black History Month 2019 is taking place across the country in October, and Lancashire FA is pleased to be hosting a Black History Month event to recognise the incredible contributions people from African and Caribbean descent have made to our country and to grassroots football.

Working alongside the National FA’s Regional Coach Manager for the North-West, Steve Smithies, as well as Lancashire FA AIB & Windrush Initiatives CIC member, Wesley Johnrose, this unique networking event will take place at the County Ground on Friday 25th October, 6pm-9pm.

The evening will cover topics such as:

  • What is Black History Month? It’s origins and importance to black communities?
  • Why is the Lancashire Football Association hosting this event now?
  • What is Lancashire FA’s vision?
