Kidderminster Harriers’ Amari Morgan-Smith has issued a public apology after his red card against Chester for foul and abusive language.
Harriers have said they have fined the forward, with non-executive director Monica Shafaq commenting: “Our supporters will be well aware of the club’s position and stance on these matters, so can be assured when we say we have, as a board and a management team, quickly assessed the facts of the incident thoroughly.
“We absolutely condemn the use of foul and abusive language at any time and have reminded Amari of his responsibilities, not only as a Kidderminster Harriers player but as a role model for others.
“His actions will not be tolerated, and in line with FA Rules, he will be suspended from playing and fined accordingly, and as a club, we consider the matter closed.”
Morgan-Smith has also issued an apology: “The club is very close to my heart so I am extremely upset that my actions may have caused offence to anyone at the club, or anyone anywhere else.”
