Yeovil Town can confirm the investigation into alleged racial chanting during our fixture against York City has been concluded by the Club and Avon & Somerset Police. 

During the Club’s internal investigation, we have worked with Kick It Out, the Police and supporter’s groups to reach a conclusion. 

Upon reviewing CCTV footage and speaking to many supporters who sit within the Screwfix Community Stand, we have been unable to identify the supporter who is heard chanting within the highlights package.

Due to this, Yeovil Town has closed our investigation into the matter. Anyone who has information and has not shared it with the police can continue to do so via 101 quoting reference number 5222215076.

We would like to place on record our thanks to all the groups that assisted with our investigation. 

As a football club, Yeovil Town finds all forms of discriminatory behaviour totally abhorrent and unacceptable. It is completely against the values of our Club, and we believe it has no place at Huish Park or anywhere else within our communities. 

We continue to stand against all forms of racist, sexist, or homophobic discrimination and we reiterate that we will always seek to take the strongest action against anyone identified committing these acts.

If you hear any form of discrimination inside or around Huish Park, we urge all supporters to report it on the day to our stewards or report anonymously on our designated matchday hotline – 07724 152 534.
