Mick Everett, Charlton FC's Head of Operations, said:
Speaking after the sentencing of seven football fans jailed for chants that glorified Stephen Lawrence's murderer, Baljit Ubhey, the CPS London Chief Crown Prosecutor, said:
"To glorify and idolise these men was disturbing and upsetting."
"Their racially and sexually abusive language left members of the public shocked and disgusted. Witnesses said they felt intimidated and feared there was a real and significant risk of violence."
Seven football fans who chanted songs that "glorify and idolise" Stephen Lawrence's murder have been jailed.
The Charlton Athletic supporters, who had been at an FA Cup match against Fulham in January last year, were convicted of causing sexual and racially motivated abuse - on a train from Putney to Waterloo.
British Transport Police said the group chanted in support of Gary Dobson, three days after he was convicted of murdering Stephen Lawrence.
