PROBE INTO RACE CLAIM

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

PO­LICE have be­gun an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a com­plaint that New­port County striker Aaron O’Con­nor was the vic­tim of racist abuse fol­low­ing his team’s 2-0 win at Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley last week.

The 31-year-old scored the first goal in his team’s victory at the Crown Ground and it’s al­leged a spec­ta­tor aimed abuse in his di­rec­tion as he walked off the pitch at full-time.

PC Mark Blackey, of the hate crime co­he­sion unit, said: “I would ap­peal to any­one who may have any in­for­ma­tion to get in touch with us.”
