Two Exeter City supporters have been banned indefinitely from St James Park after discriminatory and racist social media posts.

In a statement the club said abuse has been directed at both a former player and manager of our club.

Exeter City takes a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of abuse, both at the ground and online, especially those of a discriminatory or racist nature. The posts, made on Twitter and Facebook, fall well below the standard we expect from our supporters and have been reported to Kick It Out and the police.

– Exeter City club statement

The bans start immediately.

The club will decide how long they'll last for pending the conclusion of both the police and internal club investigation.
