Police have released images of three men they want to speak to in connection with the incidents which saw Yeovil’s FA Cup clash with Haringey Borough abandoned earlier this month.

Haringey players were reportedly subjected to racial abuse from visiting supporters, with goalkeeper Valery Douglas Pajetat claiming he was also spat at and hit by an object thrown by supporters.

Defender Coby Rowe also alleged he was labelled a “black c***” as players of both sides walked off the field in protest causing the game to be called off.

The Met Police have now released pictures of the three men they are looking to speak to as they continue to investigate the ugly October 19 incidents.

Two days after the game, two men, aged 23 and 26, were arrested in Chard and Yeovil on suspicion of racially aggravated common assault.

They were released on bail to a date in mid-November, and police are now looking to speak to three more men in connection with the events.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward

A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police are appealing for the public’s help to identify three men they would like to speak to as part of an investigation into reports of racist comments made during a football match between Haringey Borough FC and Yeovil Town on Saturday, 19 October.
