The Thurrock Tigers led by Sullander Singh have been at the vanguard of kicking racism out of football.
On a perfect saturday, the pitches at Thames Rugby Club were full of teams committed to just playing footie.
The Thurrock Tigers have been backed by Thurrock MP Andrew Mackinlay who was not averse to learning a few tricks with the ball.
