Took my 7 year old daughter to her first game today and sat in the North Stand section 29. To the end of a bell who was shouting inappropriate and borderline racist chants about our players thank you for putting my daughter off this great game of ours. I expect language like that at football but not at AP.

So sorry to read this; it is always worth talking to the Pioneers to sort out that type of behaviour

Always report either to s pioneer or to the club on Tuesday. Try to work out where he was sitting. I have unfortunately a few years ago had to report someone for a racial remark about Christian Wade.

That is truly aweful... not heard that ever in the North... a few know it all's who let everyone know but never foul or racist language.
I trust you will bring her again to show that it's not like that..
If ANYONE hears this person again please report him/her to the pioneers so he can be removed ..or have a word yourself.

I've sat in that section since we moved to AzP and not heard anything like that. I didn't hear anything on Saturday but we sit in the back rows.

Where were you sitting?

I hope it was a random visitor but anyone who heard should have reported it.

I spent 5 years in the north and NEVER heard of this, they must be a 'casual' fan but that's disappointing to hear, most north standers will not hesitate to tell someone if they are being inappropriate! Definitely report to the club as it's unacceptable

Missed on Saturday due to holiday traveling but I'm very upset to hear this unfortunately no near my north stand seat or they would have had robust response about them and the pioneers paying a visit...

I suppose it could have been a Gloucs fan if it was our players being abused? But do please report it.

"......chants about our players"

Is "our" Glaws or Saracens?

Saracens and it was racist abuse against Maro and Nick. The people next to me reported it to a Pioneer and I have also emailed the club

Thanks, the reason I asked is that it was not clear from your original post.

So, as you are a Saracen and you have been offended by Glaws supporters I am not sure why you will not bring your daughter to another game. Those giving abuse to Nick and Maro will not be there for 10 home games a season.

For sure, this does not resolve the issue of abuse and you are right to report it to the club but don't deprive your daughter for this one off incident, you'll regret it.

I took my ten year old daughter to her first game in 1996 and it was a wonderful bonding experience that went on until 2015 when she moved away from home.

It was a Saracens fan dishing the abuse out not a Gloucester fan.

I have three daughters (Hatrick) and the elder two come to most games and enjoy it. Just left a real bad taste in my mouth to hear that at AP.

Well he/she is definitely not a true Sarries fan because there is.no way that any true fan would ever be so disrespectful to anyone let alone our own players, they clearly do not have any understanding of Rugby, or its core values, so as stated it will probably be 'casual' fan and it's highly unlikely to ever happen again,
