Club Promises Swift Action

Club Promises Swift Action

The aftermath of the events that marred the game at White Hart Lane, on Sunday, has produced a couple of statements from West Ham United Football Club.

The first promised co-operation in the hunt for those who took part in the vile chanting, with the club statement saying,

'West Ham United are in contact with Tottenham Hotspur to assist them with their investigation into the conduct of a small number of supporters and alleged inappropriate chanting during yesterday's match at White Hart Lane.'

Whilst the second promised strong action against the offenders saying,

'West Ham United will take the strongest possible action against any of their supporters, including enforcing life bans from the club, that are found guilty of behaviour which is categorically not condoned by West Ham United.

'During the 46 games in the Championship last season, West Ham United had zero arrests for racism or violence, so while we are surprised to see such reports today, we will examine any available evidence of such conduct thoroughly and take the appropriate action.'

The latest reports suggest that five supporters were arrested outside the ground and a further two were cautioned for racially aggravated gesturing inside the ground.
