Along with the club and Official Supporters Club, we are deeply saddened and disgusted by reports of racial abuse at the Manchester City game towards Ashley Cole. This does not represent our club or fanbase, and there should be no place in the game or society for this type of behaviour.
Investigations are being carried out by Wiltshire Police, and we support the club in ensuring those responsible are punished. Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54220002136.
We will be contacting Ashley Cole and his representatives to offer our heartfelt apologies for what he had to endure, and to make a donation to a charity of his choosing on behalf of Official Supporters Club (OSC) and Trust members.
