FA investigating segregation claims at Crawley Town FC

Sky News published this video item, entitled “FA investigating segregation claims at Crawley Town FC” – below is their description.

The FA is investigating allegations of discriminatory words and conduct by Crawley Town manager John Yems, who has been suspended while three separate investigations are carried out.

The allegation is that footballers from ethnically diverse backgrounds were segregated from white colleagues – with one anti-racism campaigner saying it would amount to modern day “apartheid”.

A former player at the League Two club told Sky News that the claims are in his view “all true”.
