A former Gillingham FC player has become the first in the country to sue his own club for racial discrimination.

Mark McCammon played three seasons at Priestfield before leaving in 2011.

An industrial tribunal has got underway in Ashford.

It is expected the tribunal will hear claims from McCammon of alleged racial discrimination and unfair dismissal.

The striker's allegations are being denied by Gillingham FC.
