England's U19s proudly display wristbands in the name of beating bullies
England teams are supporting Anti-Bullying week with both the U19s and England Women backing the nationwide campaign today.
Stuart Pearce and his Under-21s kicked off the week by speaking out on the subject and offering advice for those who have suffered at the hands of bullies.
Anti-Bullying is also supported by The FA Tesco Skills Programme and Noel Blake’s England U19 squad were pictured with the campaign wristbands.
Blake, who guided his side to a 1-0 win over Finland at Telford last week, said: “If you know someone that’s getting bullied then do your best to support them.
“If it’s at school then tell a teacher as you’re doing the right thing and helping to make someone’s life much better.”
England Women recently qualified for the UEFA European Championship next summer and National Coach Hope Powell said: “Bullying can happen in the playground, the workplace, in any walk of life and it must not be tolerated under any circumstances.
“If you’re a victim of bullying or know someone that’s being bullied then please speak out and bring it to the attention of people who can make a difference.”
