“He told me girls should be in the kitchen”


The coach of City of Bristol, Lauren Smith, revealed he was told to stay “in the kitchen” while watching the men’s game against Sunderland on Saturday. Smith was with his players at Ashton Gate to watch the Robins lose 3-2 and later posted their comments on Twitter. “Today I went to support Bristol City with the team today and they told me that women should not be on the football pitch but in the kitchen.”

The incident came less than a week after England’s euphoria at winning the European Women’s Championship after beating Germany in extra time in the final at a sold-out Wembley, and Smith vowed that she and her team would do their bit arena to prove the aforementioned fan wrong. “To that man, I say we welcome you anytime at Robins HPC (women’s team stadium) to prove you so wrong!”

Briston City’s men’s team offered their support for the coach, sharing Smith’s post with the response: “We strongly condemn such abuse. This behavior is unacceptable and will not be allowed at Ashton Gate. We fully support Lauren Smith and are proud of our women’s team.”
