BARNSLEY midfielder Stephen Dawson has apologised to the club’s supporters for his reaction to personal abuse from a fan after the 5-0 defeat at Huddersfield.
Dawson got engaged in an angry confrontation with the fan after the final whistle. Defender Peter Ramage and winger Brek Shea ushered him away, but Shea also allegedly reacted in an inappropriate manner to the fan.
Shea is now away with the USA, who play Germany tomorrow, but could face disciplinary action when he returns for Saturday’s home game with Forest.
Dawson has made a significant donation to Barnsley Hospice as part of his apology and he said: “I would like to apologise for my actions on Saturday. My emotions were high but I shouldn’t have reacted the way I did.
“I’m really disappointed with what was said to me, but I need to be professional enough to take that.
“The fans paid an awful lot of money to see us lose 5-0 and I can understand their frustrations and disappointment.
