Newport County AFC and Rodney Parade Stadium have issued the following statement regarding a 40-year-old who was found guilty of chanting racist abuse at Rodney Parade earlier this season.
The statement reads: "Newport County AFC welcomes the court’s decision to impose a four-year football banning order on a person present in the home section, following an incident at our fixture at Rodney Parade earlier this season.
"In addition to the court-imposed football banning order, this person will also receive a lifetime ban from Newport County AFC and Rodney Parade Stadium.
"Discrimination has no place in any area of society and these actions have absolutely no place at our football club or among our fan base, either. Anyone who behaves in this manner, whether it be at the stadium, or online will receive a similar consequence.
"NCAFC work tirelessly to create an inclusive, welcoming environment for all and we would like to remind all supporters of our current policies and advise everyone to always behave in a respectable manner."
