Club Commercial Director addresses incident from weekend fixture at Crewe Alexandra

Coventry City Football Club Commercial Director Justin Tose says the club have addressed an incident during the Sky Blues' weekend away fixture with Crewe Alexandra involving a Coventry City supporter and a ballboy at Alexandra Stadium.

Mr Tose said: “This incident was brought to my attention by a number of CCFC away followers. A supporter goaded a ball boy to the point where he had to be removed from the field of play in tears. 
“This is not how we expect fans to behave. Perhaps it is encouraging that the complaint has been made by fellow supporters who were embarrassed and upset by the behaviour of this small number of fans.
“We have contacted Crewe and offered our apologies. Rest assured we will try to identify those fans involved and take appropriate action.
“As a gesture of goodwill we have – through Crewe – invited the ball boy and his family to attend the reverse fixture on the 23rd February and for him to be Crewe mascot for the day.”
