We kicked off the first week of #WeeksOfAction, with seven clubs from EFL League One supporting the campaign.

 

Saturday 20th February

Burton Albion designated their home game against Sunderland to the campaign on Saturday 20 February. Former Chelsea forward and current Albion boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink supports Weeks of Action gave a nod to the campaign in his pre-match media duties.

 

Friday 26th February

Lincoln City broadcast their support across social media on Friday night, before the big kick-off the next day.

 

Saturday 27th February

MK Dons, AFC Wimbledon, Fleetwood Town and Portsmouth all took to the pitch on Saturday afternoon ahead of their dedicated Level Playing Field fixtures, unfortunately, with no fans in the stadium.

AFC Wimbledon made their Weeks of Action debut at their new home, returning to Plough Lane after 30 years. Head Coach Mark Robinson wore a Level Playing Field badge on his coat to show his support, whilst a handful of the players posed with banners and flags pre-match.

MK Dons manager Russell Martin was heavily involved in the club’s Weeks of Action plans. He took time out of his busy schedule to host a Disabled Fans Forum, with first-team players Andy Cullen and Matt O’Riley in attendance.

 

MKFM are holding a talk with amputee footballer, strongman and author Mark Smith from 6pm on Wednesday evening.

Tomorrow night, they host their virtual Disability Awards as part of their Weeks of Action celebrations. They will use this opportunity to recognise the achievements of their 33 disability teams, and the hard work of the 50+ volunteers, coaches, and team members who make it happen.

Fleetwood Town centred their Weeks of Action celebrations around their virtual mascot for the day, Tyler Kenyon.

Before being led out on to the pitch virtually by goalkeeper Alex Caines, he got the chance to chat to former Stoke City and Republic of Ireland international, and current Fleetwood Town number 6, Glen Whelan, accompanied by gaffer Simon Grayson.

 

Tuesday 2nd March

During another round of EFL fixtures on Tuesday, Northampton Town took the opportunity to back Level Playing Field before their game vs Plymouth Argyle. The Cobblers first-team warmed-up in our Level Playing Field branded t-shirts.
