Investigation into football abuse claims

    The Manchester FA are set to look into allegations that a Jewish man was racially abused by an opposition player during a Sunday League game in Manchester.

    The man, whose son was playing for South Manchester Sports Club's Under 16 side, was called a "dirty ******* Jewish ****" during the contest against Mable United in Whitefield.

    The player was promptly shown the red card for his actions and can now expect to be investigated by the FA.

    Referee Jimmy Atherton has mentioned a number of alleged antisemitic incidents, which occurred throughout the game, in his match report and will present his findings to the county FA.

    The game itself was a turbulent affair with United having three players sent off and four booked in an action-packed 1-1 draw.

    United, who were known as Failsworth Town last season, were involved in similar scenes with South Manchester last term.

    South Manchester chairman, Jonny Davis, is now hoping the Manchester FA will take up the matter in the next few days.

    "I'm 100 per cent confident that it will be dealt with," he said.

    No-one from Mable United was available for comment.
