RACIAL VILIFICATION INCIDENT

Published on: Jun 08 2017 | Author: westadelaidefc |

It has been brought to the Clubs attention following a joint investigation with the SANFL that one of our players, Anthony Wilson, has been subject to alleged racial vilification. We would like it made absolutely clear that as a Club, we do not condone such behaviour. Whilst this incident did not involve a Norwood supporter or member, we should be very clear that the Norwood Football Club will not tolerate this type of behaviour. We are proud of Anthony and all our players with multicultural heritage and we pride ourselves on being an inclusive Football Club. The SANFL’s Integrity Officer Sean Toohey is currently undertaking an investigation. As with the Norwood Football Club, the SANFL’s priority is player welfare, and they have met with Anthony to discuss the issue and ensure he is aware of the action being taken.

We would like to take this opportunity to encourage all of our fans and members to notify Club officials in the event that you are witness to any antisocial behaviours.
