Club statement

In the 58th minute of Saturday’s Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division game against AFC Croydon Athletic, a member of the opposing team made a racially abusive comment towards the Fisher team. As a result of this comment, which was immediately brought to the match officials attention, the players and management team were united in taking a stand by leaving the field of play. As a result, the match was abandoned with the score standing at 3-1 to AFC Croydon Athletic. The players, management team and club are all in agreement that there was no option but to leave the field of play and the result of the match is unimportant in light of the abuse.

The matter is now in the hands of the authorities and Fisher Football Club will make no further comment at this stage.

    In my opinion I will support whatever the club does, but I think if the player and the club apologises then there should be a replay. There should be no need for penal sanctions in that case. Then the league needs to put in place clear protocols as to when these incidents arise.
