CHELTENHAM Town have condemned alleged homophobic chanting from the away section of supporters during Saturday's 3-0 win over Swindon Town at the County Ground.

The Robins have launched a "full investigation'' into the claims from witnesses that shouts of a homophobic nature were directed at other fans in the away section.

The police were notified about the alleged comments and Cheltenham issued a statement condemning the alleged abuse.

"Cheltenham Town Football Club is very disappointed to learn of alleged homophobic comments by a small number of individuals during the match away at Swindon Town,'' said the statement.

"The club takes such matters very seriously and has launched a full investigation to establish all details.

"Cheltenham Town Football Club always promotes equality and condemns any discrimination of any type whether by reason of race, colour, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability or age.

"The club will take a zero tolerance approach to anyone who is discovered to have made homophobic comments and will act accordingly against any offenders identified."

There is no suggestion that home fans in the crowd of 6,658 were involved in the alleged chanting.
