How should we respond to Ched Evans?

We, like many others in Sheffield (and beyond), are incredibly angry to hear that convicted rapist and Sheffield United striker, Ched Evans, is due to return to training with immediate effect. Following a request from the Professional Footballers’ Association, Sheffield United have agreed for Ched to return now that he’s served half of his five-year sentence for rape. Although they have not officially/publicly decided whether or not to re-sign Ched Evans, we believe that by allowing him to start training again, Sheffield United are beginning the process to welcome him back to the team. This is NOT ok.

Is there anything we can do to respond to this? Would anyone like to take any action, call a demo, or do something else? We could discuss here, create a FB group to talk or organise a meeting sometime in the next week or two? Let’s do something. Please feedback below.

[Since posting this in a status on our Facebook account, a group has been created to discuss any action further]
