At least three posts on social media site Twitter are claiming that it was due to ‘racism’ from a supporter.

Sevenoaks said: “Today’s game has been abandoned. We are investigating an alleged matter and no further comment will be made until this process has been concluded.”

The home side were on course for the next round as they dominated the opening 45 minutes after their Combined Counties League opponents.

Kyle De Silva and Tyrell Richardson-Brown put the hosts 2-0 up inside 18 minutes, before adding a third goal through James Bessey-Sakdana nine minutes before the half time whistle blew.

However, there was brief confusion for those inside the ground as the CB Hounslow team chose not to emerge at the start of the second half.
