FA asks for Chesterfield racism investigation

The Football Association has asked Chesterfield FC to launch an investigation into the alleged racist abuse aimed towards their players at Port Vale on Saturday (August 30).

The League One fixture was blighted by a confrontation between Spireites' defender Daniel Jones, a former Port Vale player and home supporters as the players left the pitch at the end of Chesterfield's 2-1 victory.

It is alleged that Chesterfield's black players were the subject of racist taunts from a small section of Vale fans.

Spireites chief executive Chris Turner said in a statement on his club's website: "Any form of racism cannot be tolerated. We have been asked by the FA to launch a full investigation, which will involve speaking to our players. I spoke to Port Vale Chairman Norman Smurthwaite after the match and he said they would hold their own investigation. "
