Haringey players walk off the pitch against Yeovil Town during FA Cup game – match abandoned

Haringey Borough players walked off the pitch whilst they played their FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round clash against Yeovil Town, leading to the game to be abandoned.

It came after there was allegations of racial abuse aimed at the Haringey Borough goalkeeper by Yeovil fans, leading the hosts to walk off.

Rhys Murphy had converted from the spot to put the Glovers ahead before the incident took place on the 64th minute.

Yeovil tweeted: “I cannot believe I'm tweeting this, but Haringey Borough are walking off the pitch.”

“Play has not yet resumed. We're still waiting for official news.”

Haringey said on Twitter: “Sorry for the late update but wanted to make sure we gave correct information. Game has been abandoned following racial abuse. Horrendous afternoon.

“It must be said that 99.9% of [Yeovil] fans are also disgusted by what’s happened as much as we are. One club, one community.”

Jermaine Jenas talked about it on BT Sport Score, saying: “We’re sometimes quick to get on our high horse at times and point the finger. We still have a huge problem in our leagues.”

The incident comes less than a week after Raheem Sterling, Tyrone Mings and Marcus Rashford suffered shocking racial abuse while in Bulgaria.
