Match abandoned amid ‘race slurs’ is to be played again

On Saturday, semiprofessional club Haringey Borough hosted fifth-tier side Yeovil Town in a fourth qualifying round match for England's top domestic knockout tournament.

Metropolitan Police said on Monday that two men, aged 23 and 26, have been detained on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault.

Both teams left the field on Saturday after Haringey's Coby Rowe was racially abused in the 64th minute, with Yeovil winning 1-0.

Haringey said on Twitter that the game had been abandoned following racist abuse and their defender Coby Rowe wrote on his account that he had been a victim.

Despite the successful penalty and attempts from the referee and several Yeovil players to try to calm the crowd, the match was later called off.

Projectiles were reported to have been thrown at the keeper, who also reported being spat at, while Rowe was reportedly subjected to vile racist abuse from the stands.

Northamptonshire Police said the chanting was witnessed by officers just after kick-off in the League Two game.
