STATEMENT FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Following on from the concerns sent to us post the Suffolk County Cup Quarter Final Game Vs AFC Sudbury. 

As Chairman I would like to take the opportunity to first of all thank AFC Sudbury for their corporation and support in the gathering of evidence in order for us as a club to identify the individuals in question.  We as a club at Stowmarket Town FC have always and will continue to neither accept nor condone the use of any verbal or other abuse towards any Player, Official or other Supporter in any way.  

The Board of Directors in connection with our Supporters Liaison Officer will now attempt to identify those individuals and will take all necessary actions to ensure that those identified are weeded out of attending any games in the future.  We can only apologise for any upset or inconvenience that this incident may have caused to anybody. There is always “NO ROOM FOR RACISM” in our beautiful game and we must all be doing everything we can to stop any abuse of any kind.

As a football club we are part of the grass roots football family and the local community. In football we are part of the FA Respect campaign and as such we support this initiative which means abusive and foul language towards officials, management and or players is not tolerated and along with this as a community club this is not a good example to set in front of families who attend our or anyone else’s football matches. Anyone who does not respect this campaign and is witnessed by any of Stowmarket Town FC officials will be dealt with in the appropriate way, which may result in a ban.
So please when watching a game of football enjoy the game and there by let others enjoy the game too!

RESPECT !
