FOOTBALLERS are getting behind a campaign to put a stop to domestic violence.

The White Ribbon campaign pledges to not commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.

Chairwoman Kirsty Mellor, visited Pompey players at their training ground, where the club is supporting the cause for a third year.

She said: ‘We have the Blow the Whistle scheme, which involves football teams promoting our message.

‘A lot of men and boys follow football and look up to footballers as role models.

‘With the football team on board, it helps promote our message.’
