Hamilton Accies pay tribute to victims of Paris terror attacks


Hamilton Accies paid tribute to the victims of the Paris terror attacks which left 129 dead, by donning the French away kit in Sunday’s game against Aberdeen.

The Lanarkshire side wanted to show solidarity for the people of France in a move that was particularly poignant for their French striker Christian Nade, whose younger sister was caught up in the attacks.

After their 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at New Douglas Park, manager Martin Canning, said: “Obviously that was upstairs that decided to do that and as players and staff we fully support it.

“But I said all week to the players our main focus is on the pitch and going and doing our job. We show our solidarity with what happened and we fully support it, but our main focus is to go and get three points.”

Accies announced via their official twitter account, ahead of the match, that the kits will be sent to French clubs to auction off for charity.
