"This will be the only comment from the club on this matter at this time," the statement adds.

Commenting on social media, supporter Anita Byrne said: "Went to cheer on King's Lynn Town today. [It] Was a great day marred by two things; a loss and a horrific case of racial abuse by a Lynn fan on a Guiseley player, reported and a man escorted out.
