Youth team footballer subjected to antisemitic abuse online per The Jewish Chronicle

'Parents were left "shocked and upset" after alleged antisemitic abuse on social media was directed at a member of a Jewish youth football team.

The Brady Maccabi Red under-16 player was called "Jew boy", "gay Jew" and "Nazi victim" and was referred to as "taking a gas shower".

The messages were posted on Instagram in a private chat group, seen by the player.

They were posted after Brady Maccabi beat Enfield-based Olympiacos 3-1 last Sunday in the Watford Friendly League.'

More here in the JC but obviously not on the BBC.
