Black History Month WO Sports Logo Competition

WO Sports was formed in 2015 and aims to promote healthy living and help to build better lives through sport, nutrition and diet.

WO Sports was formed in 2015 and aims to promote healthy living and help to build better lives through sport, nutrition and diet. WO Sports uses the power of sport to deliver inspiring education, health and football programmes within our community. They believe that the power of football can be used to support local communities as well as individuals.

Their founder, Wale Ojelabi, ran a Black History Month Logo Competition with the club. All players were invited to design a logo with Black History Month in mind, which was then judged by a panel and the winning design to be printed on the club’s kit. The club’s decision to run this project is to educate our players and make them aware of the Black History Month.

The committee narrowed the entries to be shortlisted and Wale had the difficult task of choosing the winner.

 1st Place – Lucas Dyson
2nd Place – Arthur Emmanuel
3rd Place - Timi Deng William

When asked on why Lucas won the competition, Wale said ‘I picked the winning design in support of racism in football that the premier league players decided to take a knee and the design just fit the course.’

Lucas chose this design as ‘all the players I read about had to deal with racist abuse. Now we can deal with it together.’

All of the parents also got involved and helped the players with their designs. One parent said ‘I never had help from my parents when I was young so I decided to help my kids with this design’.

Congratulations Lucas with your winning design, we can wait to see WO Sports wearing the badge with pride soon!
