Braintree Town have announced they will co-operate with the Football Association after a former player alleged he was subjected to anti-semitic comments from an old teammate.

Scott Shulton, who was playing for Hemel Hempstead against Braintree in the Vanarama National League on Saturday, said he received the abuse as his side won 2-1 at the Essex club’s IronmongeryDirect Stadium. Shulton, who began the season with Braintree, was involved in an altercation with his former teammate where he alleges he was called a “f****** Jew” in front of the crowd of 432 spectators.

Immediately after the game, the midfielder took to Twitter and said: “This is what winning in the 95th minute against your old team which you’ve only had respect for. Looking forward to the FA to look into the referees report after being subjected to anti-semitic comments from a player!

“Looking forward to speaking with Kick it Out tomorrow morning!”

In a statement on their club website, Braintree Town announced that they had been made aware of the allegation and would co-operate with the FA.
