Fans Ban-Final Warnings
« on: November 15, 2019, 10:25:26 AM »
Club statement
November 15, 2019

Following a meeting between the King’s Lynn Town football club safety advisory group and representatives of  the local authorities, including Norfolk Police, a person has been given a banning order from attending all fixtures at The Walks stadium for the remainder of the 2019/ 20 season. This is in relation to an incident that took place during the fixture with Chester, played at The Walks  on Saturday October 12th 2019 and another  incident prior to this date. A second person has also been issued with a ‘ final warning  ‘ letter in relation to events that took place , again during the match with Chester. 

During the fixture at Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday November 9th 2019 two King’s Lynn Town supporters were ejected from Bradford’s stadium for incidents that occurred during the first half of the game. These two individuals have been identified by the club and are also (in the process) of receiving ‘ final warning ‘ letters in relation to their actions.  All three persons issued with ‘ final warning’ letters have been told that further repetition of their actions will also result in banning orders from attending all fixtures at The Walks.

The actions of the persons above has seen the club being fined by the Football Association and warned of their future conduct. Indeed an investigation regarding last weekend’s incidents  are still ongoing. It is with all of these factors taken into account  that the club are now adopting a ‘ zero tolerance ‘ stand on such misbehaviour and actions. The club also wishes that all supporters read and are aware of a ‘ safe guarding statement ‘ that appears in every home match programme covering supporter behaviour whilst in the ground.

As a club we value and appreciate your support of the club and team greatly. However we do ask that your support is given correctly and not in a way that could cause offence to others. We will be monitoring  behaviour even more closely from now on, beginning at Southport  on Saturday  ,  to ensure this happens. Further incidents and allegations this season could see serious consequences  for the club in the future.

 The club will be making no further comment on this statement.

Minority idiots who cannot behave themselves in a civilised manner have spoilt things for the majority again. Can they not engage their brains and think of the ramifications of their actions  :dontknow:  :banghead; :banghead; :yellow card: :yellow card::red card:

Name and shame, whats the point of keeping it quiet for their sake? They'll probably be bragging about it on social media by the end of the day. If we get hit with points reduction or fine is it fair on the supporters or more so the players who have put everything into the season. Life ban seems more appropriate

One has already taken to social media!  :banghead;

There’s Stephen Cleeve opening up on how much he is having to put in to keep the club up at the top of the League then the poor bloke is hit by FA for poor fan behaviour.   Have a word with yaself’s guys.  You should be helping to keep this standard of football going at The Walks not hampering it by penalising the club with stupid fines.

Everyone should be doing their bit.  Chairman (tick) Players ( tick) Volunteers.  As for the fans let’s see you keep turning up in ever greater numbers.  Then any money Stephen puts in helps Ian with the strength of his squad.

Sorry for the rant

Does the banned person not feel the decision was just, Griss ?

The person feels they have been singled out as a publicity stunt, and is making many wild claims on Facebook.  :banghead;

Given the fairly recent issues of flares, followed by  verbal abuse of a reserve team player, on social media, I am aghast that there wasn't a zero tolerance policy in place at the start of the season.
If the club are serious about building crowds, getting new young supporters and families into the ground, they need to stamp out unwanted behaviour quickly and that should also include foul language, whoever it is directed at.
Some 'supporters' need to realise quickly that just because they have been getting away with it in the past , doesn't mean it's acceptable from now on. So if someone transgresses from now on it should mean a ban ....and not for the rest of the season, but for at least 10 years.
