CLUB STATEMENT | Alleged Incidents vs Dover Athletic

Posted:Mon 07 Jan 2019

Wrexham AFC are undertaking an investigation of two alleged incidents that took place concerning a small minority of spectators at Saturday’s match with Dover Athletic. 

Two incidents of alleged discriminatory behaviour were reported to the club, police and match officials and corroborated by witnesses amongst which include players and staff, from both teams.

We would like to publicly offer our apologies to the players involved and all the officials, staff and supporters of Dover Athletic Football Club.

North Wales Police are also carrying out their own investigation into reports about unacceptable behaviour of certain individuals, not only on Saturday but at other games this season, home and away.

The club investigation will work alongside and fully support the police investigation, after three people were interviewed by the officers on duty at Saturdays match.

Should any criminal prosecutions be necessary these individuals will also be subject to severe sanctions from the Club, including bans to all events held at the Racecourse.

These investigations surround an incident close to the dugouts shortly after Dover scored their late winner, by examining footage from the club’s CCTV system and also from body-cams worn by security staff, to add to the statements of witnesses.

A second issue was reported post-match and centred on the Dover substitutes warming up at the side of the pitch earlier in the game.

We encourage any supporters who have witnessed these events and are able to pass on their information to the Football Club to contact us in confidence, as this will help us identify those people involved, as we continue to review the evidence we have already collected.

Please contact us via email – [email protected] or call us on 01978 89 1864

Wrexham AFC is a community owned club and is all inclusive – our supporters will not accept any form of anti-social behaviour, in whatever guise carried out by a small minority.

As well as the hurt and upset for individuals, this does untold damage to our reputation as a Football Club and can lead to further possible consequences.
