SPECTATOR RECEIVES LIFETIME BAN FOR ABHORRENT COMMENTS

A spectator who made abhorrent comments to a player, during a game, about the death of his child has been issued a lifetime ban by the football club. The incident occurred on Monday 6th April, during Dover Athletic’s home fixture against Woking. The incident was investigated by the club, following a report by the Matchday Official and club Safety Officer.

Chairman Jim Parmenter said “Everyone at Dover is saddened and disgusted that such deplorable behaviour, for which there can be no mitigation, has occurred at our Club. Our sincerest regret and apologies go to the player and his family.

We make great effort to be welcoming, hospitable and inclusive to all and I hope that our supporters will not be judged on this one individual.

Following the conclusion of our investigation the individual involved will be issued with a life ban with immediate effect.”
