We are extremely disappointed to see some of the footage to appear online in The Times article today, referring to our away fixture at Notts County on 5th February 2022. It is regrettable that a minority of individuals continue to behave in such a way as to taint our fan-base generally.
The perspective of the journalist highlights an important societal issue but once again distorts the picture of our town and negates the positive efforts of many in our community. As a Club, we will be working with the Football Supporters’ Association and our partner agencies, aiming to eradicate poor fan behaviour, taking a tough position but also supporting any of our fans with alcohol and substance abuse issues.
As a Club, we will always do our utmost to get the best possible away ticket allocation for our fans, and resist changes to kick-off times, but footage of this nature directly impacts our efforts. Thank you to the vast majority of our fan base who continue to represent our Club in a positive way.
