Pompey Supporters' Trust is shocked and appalled at the news overnight of allegations of racist messages circulating within the social media accounts of some Pompey Academy players.
We welcome the investigation by the club and following discussions with the club we are aware of the seriousness and urgency that this matter is being dealt with.
The PST is fiercely opposed to all forms of discrimination and abuse. These vile and abhorrent messages have no place in football or anywhere else in society.
For information on how to report online abuse, the Football Supporters Association has produced this guide: How can fans report online abuse? - Football Supporters' Association (thefsa.org.uk)
