Hartlepool United can confirm that we are in receipt of
the FA Charge under Rule E20 and will respond accordingly by Tuesday 5th
In previous statements we have made clear our condemnation of individuals' behaviour during the fixture against Dover Athletic, and have continued to underline our position on discrimination or abuse of any kind through our actions rather than words.
Our aim has been to set the example on how to respond to
matters such as this and we will continue to explore all avenues of educationand improvement in that regard.
We look forward to a fair hearing with The FA.
