Earlier today we were made aware of remarks made overnight by one of our first team players on a dating platform. The player concerned has been dismissed and his registration with the club has been cancelled with immediate effect.

This behaviour is abhorrent and goes against everything we stand for as a club. We are committed to expanding and supporting female football and as a tight-knit group, we are shaken and disgusted by these revolting and repugnant remarks.

We would like to apologise to anyone who has been affected by this player’s remarks, which we, like any right-minded person, find totally and utterly unacceptable.
