Plymouth Argyle Football Club have been issued a formal warning by the Football Association over fans' homophobic chanting earlier this year.

The FA opened an investigation after the Pilgrims played away to Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium on August 31 this year.

Although it appeared to be a small number of fans chanting at the game, any reports of further discriminatory behaviour could see the club facing disciplinary action.

In a club statement, PAFC have again stated they do not condone discrimination of any kind, and have threatened Home Park banning orders and legal action against fans found making offensive comments.

We have said it before, but to be absolutely clear, let us repeat – Plymouth Argyle is a community-focused, values-driven organisation, whose stated aim is to make attending football matches as inclusive and enjoyable as possible for all members of society.
