Two men have been arrested over racist abuse during an FA Cup match between Haringey Borough FC and Yeovil Town on Saturday.
The men – aged 23 and 26 – were arrested in Chard and Yeovil on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault, the Metropolitan Police said.
The fourth-qualifying-round match at Haringey’s Coles Park ground saw the players walk off in the 64th minute, shortly after Yeovil had gone 1-0 up via a penalty.
Sorry for the late update but wanted to make sure we gave correct information.
Game has been abandoned following racial abuse. Horrendous afternoon.
It must be said that 99.9% of @YTFC fans are also disgusted by what’s happened as much as we are.
One club, one community.
