Two men arrested following allegedly racist abuse towards former Ipswich and England star

Two men have been arrested following an incident in Hintlesham when former Ipswich and England star Kieron Dyer was allegedly racially abused.

On Saturday, August 1, police received a report of the incident that had taken place on Friday, July 24, at Hintlesham Golf Club.

A man in his 50s was been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and on suspicion of a malicious communications offence.

A man in his 30s has also been arrested on suspicion of a malicious communications offence.

The two men remain in police custody and will be interviewed in due course.

Former midfielder Dyer said that someone at the club had made racist comments towards him, which he had not heard but his playing partner had.

Dyer, who played more than 90 times for Town, said he was left feeling “shocked and appalled” following the alleged incident and handed in his resignation to the club via an email.

The golf club said they would ban anyone found to have used racist language.
