A football club has been charged with race victimisation by the FA after it ‘refused to pay medical bills’ for an injured black striker.

Gillingham Football Club and its chairman Paul Scally have been charged over the dismissal of retired striker Mark McCammon after the football governing body judged its rules had been breached.

The former Barbados international player sued the club in August 2012 after being sacked the previous year amid claims he was treated differently because he was black.
