AFC Telford United have confirmed a lifetime ban for a fan who made racist comments to a Leyton Orient player.

The incident happened at Telford’s home match with Orient in the FA Trophy semi-final last year.




The 40-year-old man was given a three-year football banning order and a £330 fine. He was also ordered to pay £135 to the CPS and a £33 victim surcharge.

The club have said today: “AFC Telford United would like to thank all those supporters who reported this individual to the club.

“This individual will also receive a lifetime ban from the New Bucks Head. Discrimination has no place in any area of society and these actions have absolutely no place at our football club or among our fan base.

“Anyone who behaves in this manner, whether it be at the stadium, or online will receive a similar consequence.”
