FA Cup Tie Abandoned Due To Racist Abuse As Players Walked Off

Haringey Borough walked off the pitch during an FA Cup tie against Yeovil Town after their goalkeeper suffered “horrendous” racial abuse from Yeovil Town supporters.

The team were ordered off the pitch  by manager Tom Loizou in the 64th minute after Valery Douglas Pajetat had missiles thrown at him while preparing to face a penalty.

 Keeper Pajetat, from Cameroon, said he had been racially abused and spat at before facing the spot kick, which after a lengthy delay was scored by Yeovil Town.

The fourth qualifying round match was abandoned by the ref with the score at 1-0.

Haringey Borough tweeted: “Game has been abandoned following racial abuse. Horrendous afternoon. It must be said that 99.9% of @YTFC fans are also disgusted by what’s happened as much as we are. One club, one community.”
