Persistent standing has, over recent weeks, become an increasing issue particularly in the Matthew Harding lower tier.


To clarify the position with regards to persistent standing we would advise all supporters that it is an offence under the Ground Regulations and, as such, should supporters continue to stand the club may well have imposed upon it, a reduction in capacity in the areas where it occurs.


We understand that supporters will stand at times of excitement and this is acceptable but persistent standing does cause distress and discomfort to others.


The club has received complaints regarding the issue and we would urge you to respect your fellow supporters, senior citizens, adults and juniors in this regard.
