Everton FC have taken the unprecedented step of banning a fan for racial and homophobic abuse of a fellow supporter on Twitter.

The club were alerted to tweets by the unnamed fan directed towards Ric Wee, the Malaysian Evertonian who became famous when, after travelling thousands of miles for his first match at Goodison Park, the game was cancelled by hurricane force winds last February.

In a written letter, Dave Lewis, Everton's Head of Security and Stadium Safety, explained:

Everton Football Club does not welcome those who display such homophobic and racist views and to that end the decision has been made to ban you from attending all Everton FC matches until further notice. In accordance with our normal practice this ban may be reviewed annually in the event that you submit a written request after 20 June 2015.
