CLUB STATEMENT

Friday, January 19 2018

HARINGEY BOROUGH FA CUP REPLAY MONDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER

Following the allegations of racist behaviour against Hitchin Town fans during and after this game by Haringey Borough FC to Kick It Out, which were then in turn reported by them to the FA, the club submitted a detailed response to the FAs questions which were asked of us.

Having considered our response and having conducted their investigations, the FA confirmed that they would not be taking any formal action against the Club on this occasion.

The Club takes any allegation of disorderly behaviour extremely seriously, and therefore placed the utmost importance on this investigation, when seeking to gather evidence and reporting to the FA. Whether they are proven or not, allegations such as these are both damning and damaging to the Club. This whole episode serves as a stark reminder to us all that there is absolutely no place at Top Field or indeed in any other public place for fans of Hitchin Town FC displaying any form of racist, sexist, homophobic or any other behaviour which could be deemed to be disorderly.

The Club has given its commitment to the FA that it will do everything possible to ensure that a culture that welcomes equality and diversity is prevalent in the future, and that it will demonstrate a zero tolerance approach to any inappropriate or disorderly behaviour as described above. You will notice that the Club has already increased its security presence at games, and we have already started work to promote and strengthen the messages we need to convey to all those attending matches at Top Field.

We feel sure that our regular, loyal supporters will view this statement very seriously and exercise care and consideration in helping support and promote the culture where we welcome everybody to Top Field, and that behaviour is always appropriate. Anybody who does witness any disorderly behaviour of a racist, sexist or homophobic nature should report it immediately to a security officer, or to Len Leroux the Club Safety Officer who is based in the Club Shop, so that it can be dealt with proactively at the time of occurrence.

The Club Management will take the strongest action against anyone found to be displaying any such behaviours; this could include the offer of further education and support to an offender, a temporary ban, or in the most extreme cases, an indefinite or permanent Club Banning order,

We will shortly be publishing a new and up to date Supporters Code of Conduct. This will be clearly on display and visible at Top Field.
