MFC Foundation Day
This Saturday is Boro’s “Foundation” match.
Thanks to the generosity of Kindred, 32Red will be replaced by MFC Foundation on the front of Boro’s shirts, with those shirts then signed and auctioned off after the game.
The players will also wear MFC Foundation t-shirts during the warm-up, while the match programme will contain a six-page Foundation spread.
We’re Backing Play Safe
The club is lending its full support to Play Safe – a national FA-led campaign to raise awareness of the importance of safeguarding in football.
Play Safe is being run in partnership with the NSPCC and has the full backing of the Premier League, EFL, Barclays FA Women’s Super League and the FA Women’s Championship. It’s also supported and being run across every other level of the game.
The main element of Play Safe is a series of short films which emphasise the importance of clubs such as ours having safeguarding embedded in all that we do.
The films also explain to parents/carers and children themselves know what to do if they feel unsafe or worried, because nothing matters more than making sure football is safe for everyone, especially children and young people.
