The ex-Newcastle and Ipswich midfielder said: “It was brought to my attention that a member verbally abused me in the bar area at Hintlesham Golf Club last Friday.

“That abuse was of a racial nature. And while I did not hear it myself as I had left, I was left shocked when told.

“I immediately resigned via email. I have always found it a nice club with good people.

“But this is a deeply upsetting incident. I just hope the matter is dealt with appropriately by the club.


“There is no place for this type of racism in our society.”

Dyer, who played 33 times for England, had been a member of the club near Ipswich for several years.

He splashed out on a lavish christening party for his son at the 16th century Hintesham Hall hotel next door to the golf club in 2006.
