Longwood footballer decides not to go through with mediation after initial claims he was racially abused by Avenel player.CHALPAT SONTI June 25, 2014 3:40am
The saga of the alleged racial abuse during an Avenel-Longwood football game appears to be over.
The Longwood player at the centre of the allegations has decided not to go through with mediation, bringing to an end a Kyabram District Football League investigation. Both clubs were told to go to mediation after a shambolic tribunal hearing recently.
The matter brought national headlines, including the reporting of the alleged words spoken, but in the end the Longwood player’s claim amounted to nothing resembling any racial abuse.
An investigation by the Telegraph exposed serious flaws in the original claims, but despite this, the Avenel player was named elsewhere. He has since suffered abuse of his own due to the mud thrown.
Avenel now believes the saga is over, but some of the mud might stick.
