Stop your club from ending up like this (Img: Michael Tracey)

Only 29 of England’s 92 football league clubs are actively engaged in the Football v Homophobia initiative which launched in February, it turns out.

Accrington Stanley, AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot Town, Barnet, Barnsley, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers, Bournemouth, Bradford City, Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Bristol City, Burnley, Burton Albion, Bury, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Chelsea, Cheltenham Town, Chesterfield, Colchester United, Coventry City, Crawley Town, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers, Everton, Fleetwood Town, Fulham, Hartlepool United, Hull City, Leeds United, Manchester United, Middlesbrough, Morecambe, Newcastle United, Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Oldham Athletic, Oxford United, Plymouth Argyle, Portsmouth, Port Vale, Queens Park Rangers, Reading, Rochdale, Rotherham United, Scunthorpe United, Sheffield United, Shrewsbury Town, Southampton, Southend United, Stevenage Borough, Stoke City, Swansea City, Swindon Town, Torquay United, Tottenham Hotspur, Walsall, Watford, Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Wycombe Wanderers, Yeovil Town and York City.

One onlooker said: “I’m surprised about Brighton.

“Brighton’s quite gay, right? Isn’t it? Or am I thinking of Blackpool?”

He added: “I’m pretty sure it’s Brighton I’m thinking of.”

Another said: “Why didn’t you just write the names of the 29 Football League teams that *are* affiliated with the Football v Homophobia initiative? Wouldn’t that’ve saved time?”
