CLUB STATEMENT

21 October 2013

Further racist incident confirmed

THE Club can confirm it has been made aware another incidence of racist abuse aimed at our manager Chris Hughton on an unofficial Facebook page over the weekend.

Norfolk Police, already investigating a similar case which came to light after our recent game against Stoke City, informed the Club of the latest incident after last Saturday’s visit to Arsenal.

Norwich City will co-operate fully with investigations into these hate crimes and strongly supports prosecution of those responsible.

City Chief Executive David McNally said: “The Club has a zero tolerance policy towards racism and other forms of discrimination and is committed to taking firm action against anyone found guilty of such behaviour on or off the pitch.

“There have been a number of examples of racist language being used about our players and manager in the past couple of seasons and enough is enough. Such language and behaviour is totally unacceptable and we will ban any supporter found guilty of racism from Carrow Road, in addition to any penalties which may be handed out by the courts.

“The message to any racists out there is simple – you are not wanted at Norwich City.”
