Hull City are the latest club to back the Rainbow Laces initiative, the FA and Stonewall’s anti-homophobia campaign.

As reported by the Hull Daily Mail, the Tigers have joined Arsenal stars Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, along with Queens Park Rangers’ Joey Barton in supporting the campaign.

Rainbow Laces is officially launched today, and urges players to wear multi-coloured laces to send out the message that homophobia will not be tolerated in the modern game.

In other news, Hull winger Tom Ince has been looking ahead to the England under-21s’ final group match against Moldova on Tuesday.

England have won the group with ease, but in quotes published by ITV, Ince said, “We’ve had a great campaign and we want to have a strong finish on Tuesday against Moldova.

“That would be a great run for us, but then there are the play-offs in October and we’ll find out who we get next week.”

After Tuesday’s game, Ince will no doubt be looking forward to getting back to domestic matters, with a number of new arrivals meaning Hull fans are anticipating what could be an excellent season for Steve Bruce’s side.
