STAR players and staff from The New Saints FC showed their support at an Oswestry charity campaign that helps prevent violence against women and girls.  

Star players such as Danny Redmond, Jon Routledge and Ryan Astles attended the town’s White Ribbon Day market stall to meet representatives from women’s charity, Women’s Aid, equipped with white ribbons as a sign of their support for the charity’s continuous work.

Speaking on the visit, first-team player John Routledge said: “It was very important for us to show solidarity with Oswestry Town Council today as they continue to show support for White Ribbon.

"It’s an incredible charity doing some excellent work across the UK, and we’ll continue to support their cause in every way we can.

“We are always eager to support the local community and it was great to be involved in such an important campaign.”


White Ribbon is the UK’s leading charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women and girls, with White Ribbon Day officially taking place on Saturday 25th November. Oswestry Town Council is now a White Ribbon accredited organisation, keen to spread the message that violence against women must end. 

Speaking on the club’s support for White Ribbon Day, Chairman Mike Harris added: “We are proud to be at the centre of the community and to show our support for White Ribbon Day alongside several other organisations across Oswestry.

“Many of our players will be role models for young people across Oswestry and the surrounding area, so it’s important that we show our support for charities such as White Ribbon and the importance of their campaign.”
