Kidderminster Harriers Football Club can regretfully confirm the receipt of a complaint of racial abuse during Saturday afternoon’s fixture against Alfreton Town at Aggborough

The complaint of abuse – which was of a personal nature – was reported by a Kidderminster player during the first half of the game and emanated from the away end of the stadium housing Alfreton Town supporters.  
Kidderminster Harriers has a long and proud tradition as a family Club and strongly enforces a zero-tolerance policy on racism and indeed all forms of abuse – behaviour of this type from any fan attending matches at Aggborough as a Harriers supporter or a visiting spectator is wholly unacceptable. 

At this stage, the Police and the Football Association are all being consulted and the Club are co-operating in the fullest with enquiries being made. We would ask that any supporter who may have heard or witnessed the incident kindly get in touch with the Club as soon as possible to share any information at all they may have. We must also add that the Club is in receipt of the full co-operation of Alfreton Town Football Club’s staff and Directors and this is appreciated. 

Local Police can be contacted by telephoning PC Stockton on 0300 333 3000 (ext. 3946).
