Patrick Bamford and Tyler Adams recently paid a special visit to Roundhay Primary School to be a part of a No Room For Racism workshop with the Leeds United Foundation.

The Leeds United duo paid the visit following training as the class of young pupils took part in their weekly newspaper club where they discuss a variety of important topics, with a real focus around equality, diversity and inclusion.

Coaches from the club's official charity deliver sessions in the local school from Monday through to Friday, and for this exclusive session with two first-team players as special guests, a number of different No Room For Racism resources were used to talk about the importance of allyship and what it takes to be a good ally.

Patrick and Tyler were on hand to chat with the students about different scenarios were racism may occur, and come up with a number of top tips on how you can act as an ally before answering questions from the group around the topic of racism and their experiences growing up and in football.

This session around racism was just one of many the Foundation deliver around schools in the city, and they deliver them throughout the entire school year, with players from the first team and Under-21s getting involved were possible to help highlight the importance of education around the subject.
