In respect of the alleged abusive comments made in the game between Bognor Regis Town and Worthing Football Club.

We do not condone any form of abuse to any player, supporter or official. It is totally unacceptable and has no place, whatsoever, in the game.

We will first wait for the referee’s report and his understanding of events. We will also liaise with the Isthmian League and Bognor Regis Town Football Club, with whom the club has a very good relationship, to establish as many facts as we can around any incident that was reported. If the alleged abuse does need to be answered, then we will deal with the matter thoroughly, speedily and fairly.

We must stress that we have an excellent fanbase who are rightly distressed that one or two individuals may have let us all down.
