Statement re yesterdays game at Moneyfields
Winchester City Football Club were extremely disappointed to learn that Moneyfields' player Lamin Jatta suffered racial abuse during our game on Saturday.
WCFC pride ourselves on being an inclusive club and do not condone discrimination of any kind. We will obviously do everything we can to assist with investigating the incident.
Our initial enquiries when this was brought to our attention on Saturday found that the only person associated with WCFC in the vicinity of the stand was our press officer, Malcolm Clarke, who did not hear the comment. Our understanding is that the rest of our supporters were behind the goal at the opposite end of the pitch which we were attacking in the second half. We will continue to help Moneyfields and the authorities to investigate this incident in any way we can.
