Football: Duo targeted by racists; NON-LEAGUE NEWS.

Byline: By Nick Pullen

BOLDMERE St Michaels manager Mick Bayley will be demanding action after his players and staff were subjected to racial abuse by Rocester supporters last Saturday.

Striker Josh McKenzie, who was later sent off, together with assistant manager Trevor Borroughs were particularly targeted.

An angry Bayley added: "These so-called supporters also hurled abuse at Trevor's wife and children.

That just isn't on!"

Birmingham County FA official Mike Fellows was at the game and claimed: "These people spoilt it for everyone.

"The referee has reported the incident and I have written to both the Midland Alliance League Secretary and to the Staffordshire FA backing up the ref's report.

"I also understand a number of people at the game were proposing to write letters of complaint as well.

"I've visited Rocester on a number of occasions in the past and always found the place very enjoyable."

The Mikes eventually missed out 4-3 despite a goal by new signing Tobias Salmon, who has arrived at Church Road from Rushall Olympic.

Youth team player Joe Davies was also on target.
