Enter Shikari bassist Chris Batten said: “Growing up I was passionate about two things... football and music.

“The reality is that sport and music go hand in hand when it comes to providing a positive outlet for young people, no matter what their background.

“St Albans City FC lead the way with their community outreach programs and Enter Shikari couldn’t be more proud to embark on a partnership with the club.

“We 100 per cent support the work St Albans City FC already do locally and we look forward to working together to find new ways we can give back to the city and the communities that raised us.”
