The club is supporting goalkeeper Tony Thompson following the well-publicised incident that led to his sending off in the FA Trophy defeat to Guiseley at Cantilever Park on Saturday.
The process of reviewing the video footage is ongoing. We note the statement from Guiseley AFC and will be providing them with the video footage.
It goes without saying that the incident is deplorable and has no place in non-league football, football or society in general.
We have also been contacted by Cheshire Police regarding the incident.
We will await the referees report and FA charge before deciding what action to take regarding the red card.
Our priority is ensuring that Tony is given the support he needs given the attention that the story is receiving, and we know he is thankful for the messages of support he has received, particularly from other goalkeepers.
