access_time 1 month ago

Following incidents at the weekend in our home fixture against Crawley Town, the Club has issued the following statement.

The Club would like to remind fans that encroachment onto the pitch is a criminal offence and will be taken very seriously when it happens.

Football banning orders will be issued for those identified, as the club will take a zero tolerance approach to this moving forward.

In recent weeks, most notably this weekend against Crawley Town, supporters have entered the field of play.

CCTV footage is now being reviewed by the club and the necessary authorities to identify the individuals who ran onto the pitch, and determine the following outcomes.

The safety of everyone is of paramount importance when coming to a football match, and this includes players and officials.

The Club will continue to work centrally with the EFL and local authorities to monitor the situation, and make the Breyer Group Stadium a safe as possible venue.

We thank fans for their understanding and compliance, and refer you to our most recent code of conduct for recent safety measures.
