U's support Shamal after report of racism

11 September 2021

Colchester United back Barrow after abuse aimed at U's keeper.

Following the reports of racial abuse aimed at Shamal George, Colchester United support Barrow’s intention to find and punish any person or persons responsible.

Like Barrow, Colchester United would like to make it absolutely clear that we abhor discrimination in all its forms.

We would also like to commend Barrow in the effective way that they used the protocols available, and for their swift declaration that they will take the strongest action possible, including pursuing life bans, for anyone found guilty of racism.

Colchester United will do everything we can to assist their and any subsequent EFL or criminal investigation into this matter.

No person, in football or in our wider society, should have to be subjected to this discrimination or abuse and we will support Shamal in any way that he needs it.

If you see or hear any discrimination at a football stadium, report it to the nearest steward or via the Kick It Out Reporting App.
