The Football Association are to take no further action regarding claims of racist abuse during the Black Country Derby between Walsall and Wolverhampton Wanderers which took place at Banks's Stadium on 8th March.

The FA statement confirms that following a brief investigation involving Walsall FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Midlands Police and stewards in attendance that no further action will be taken.

The statement reads as follows “Walsall Football Club immediately started an investigation and we have now received the club’s full response.

"Walsall have advised The FA that no reports of racist abuse were made to the control room on the day by stewards or police and that nothing was reported by the match officials.  Since the game, Walsall have carried out a full review of the CCTV footage and advise that there is nothing of evidential use in respect of racist behaviour. Also that at their subsequent home game on 11th March the club took the opportunity to question all stewards working in the relevant areas of the ground and none of them reported hearing any racist abuse at the Wolves game.

"In the circumstances, we can confirm that The FA is not in a position to take any further action in this matter.”
