A football club has condemned the behaviour of fans following "isolated incidents of abuse" at recent games.

AFC Wimbledon posted a statement on its website saying that it takes these reports very seriously and that there is no place for it in the game.

"The boards of AFC Wimbledon and the Dons Trust share these supporters’ extreme disappointment," it read.

"Whilst these incidents are not representative of the majority of our fans, this behaviour is condemned and is not welcome at our club.

"We are a community club, and all members of our community should be able to watch our matches without fear of hearing abuse."

At the end of last year, the club's existing statement relating to inclusive behaviour that forms part of the ground regulations was expanded.

Previously it covered racism and homophobia specifically, but it now includes any form of abuse indirectly or directly targeted at any member of our footballing community.

"Ensuring that all members of our community feel safe and welcome at the club is of paramount importance, particularly as we look to expand our fanbase when we move back to Plough Lane," the statement added.

"We would like to take this opportunity to remind fans to familiarise themselves with the ground regulations.

"If on a match day anyone has any concerns over a matter of safety, or hears any racist or homophobic language or obscene chanting, or discriminatory or abusive language targeting specific members of the community, they should notify a steward immediately, or text or call the matchday control room on 07704 649119.

"By reporting an incident immediately, it can be dealt with straight away.

"Together, we can help make sure that our matches are a welcoming environment for everyone."
