The club has announced it plans to issue a statement on Tuesday evening this week in relation to the series of tweets that came after last Wednesday evening's 3-0 loss at Hitchin Town.

The three messages, later deleted, were posted on Twitter by a user @UltrasLynn, and are understood to have targeted young player Kieran Shipp.
