After the deplorable incident at today's home game against Coalville Town, we can confirm that the player responsible has been released by the club. We are a family club and incidents of this nature have no place in football and will not be tolerated at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds.The club acted quickly and decisively and released the player with immediate effect and as such the player in question will never play for our football club again.

We apologise to each and every supporter at the game today and whilst as a club, we can't legislate for incidents of this nature, we will not tolerate them from anyone.
