Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward following an incident at an AFC Sudbury match last weekend.
Suffolk Constabulary said officers were called at 4.30pm on February 27 by the home team, who were hosting Redbridge FC at their ground in Brundon Lane.
“A player is alleged to have directed abusive behaviour towards some spectators as he was leaving the pitch,” said a statement released today. “Police are keen to hear from anyone who was either a target of this behaviour or who may have witnessed it.”
AFC Sudbury also put an appeal on its website urging anyone who could help to come forward.
The club said the incident took place in the player’s entrance during the second half when one of Redbridge’s players was being escorted from the pitch.
AFC Sudbury won the game 5-1 and are 12 points clear at the top of the league.
