THE teenager who admitted chanting racial abuse at AFC Bournemouth's Premier League fixture at Tottenham Hotspur will receive a lifetime ban from Cherries, the club has confirmed.

As reported, the 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to indecent/racial chanting during Cherries' 3-2 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, November 30, 2019.

He was given a three-year football banning order when he appeared before Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court earlier this week.

However, Cherries have confirmed they will be issuing their own sanctions.

A statement issued by AFC Bournemouth said: "AFC Bournemouth welcome the court’s decision to impose a three-year football banning order on a person present in the visiting section, following an incident at our fixture at Tottenham Hotspur last November.

"In addition to the court-imposed football banning order, this member of the public – who we refuse to acknowledge as a supporter – will also receive a lifetime ban from AFC Bournemouth.

"Discrimination has no place in any area of society and these actions have absolutely no place at our football club or among our fan base, either.

"AFC Bournemouth work tirelessly to create an inclusive, welcoming environment for all and we are disgusted and angered that this person acted in this way."

Magistrates also ordered the boy to pay a £55 fine and £21 surcharge.

Tottenham Hotspur said they supported the decisions by the courts and AFC Bournemouth.

A spokesperson for the North London club said: “We welcome the court and AFC Bournemouth’s decisions and reiterate there is no place in society for any form of racist or discriminatory behaviour.”
