Exeter has banned two supporters from games in St James Park after abusing social media addressed to departing midfielder Hiram Boateng and former manager Paul Tisdale.
Boateng recently signed for MK Dons – the Tisdale club left the Grecians in June 2018 – and that news led to a number of offensive messages on Twitter and Facebook.
A statement from Exeter reads: & # 39; City today banned two supporters from games at St James Park indefinitely for abuse of social media directed against both a former player and manager of our club.

& # 39; Exeter City uses a zero tolerance approach to all forms of abuse, both locally and online, especially those of a discriminatory or racist nature.
& # 39; The messages made on Twitter and Facebook are far below the standard that we expect from our supporters and have been reported to Kick It Out and the police.
& # 39; The ban will enter into force immediately, the length of which will be decided pending the closure of both a club and police investigation. & # 39;
Tisdale left Exeter last summer before leading MK Dons to League One
