Haringey Borough football players walked off the pitch in an FA Cup qualifier in North London after fans allegedly hurled racist abuse at players, forcing the abandonment of the match.  

Their fourth round tie against Yeovil Town has already been delayed by 15 minutes after it was claimed on social media that the opponent's fans made racial insults at the home team. 

The Football Association has already launched an investigation, saying it was 'deeply concerned', while the Metropolitan Police are also looking into the allegations. 

It comes after England players were subjected to shocking racial abuse in a match against Bulgaria during a Euro 2020 qualifier in Sofia. 

The Haringey home players walked off the field 64 minutes in, led by Haringey Borough manager Tom Loizou, shortly after Yeovil had scored. Loizou later described the incident as 'very distressing'.
