Keith and the Reverend Jesse Jackson have planted a tree in memory of Antoin Akpom, the promising football coach who died after being attacked in the street earlier this year.

Around 60-70 people gathered at Nirvana FC on Sandhills Avenue to mark the visit of the Reverend, who praised the clubs fight against discrimination in football. Paying tribute to Antoin the Reverend urged those gathered to ‘come together in love and not in hate and hurt’.
