Well it wouldnít be my decision but it wouldnít hurt to do a poll i m o

Well, Malcolm, given the troubles against Boston, I know the stewards are keen to raise some money for body cams. By all accounts, these not only make it so much simpler to identify anyone causing trouble by abusive or aggressive behaviour, there use has shown to reduce incidents by half.

We'd be talking of a small fraction of the £7k to help safeguard not only a group of volunteers, but the public as well.

Will the person controlling the purse strings at FOTL sign off on it though ?
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Well, if they would, there's no telling what it may prevent. As I say, it would only be a small amount of the money in the account, with the lion's share still up for grabs.

Who's that these days?

In addition to "Body-Cams" I would suggest improving the security of the Segregation Zone. There needs to be a more substantial barrier/screens between the two groups and an increase in distance of the zone.

I think the body cams are a great idea

Yeah think you are spot on there Malc.  It is a great idea.  Could you put the idea to Barry and see if he is prepared to sign off on it?

They would, I'm sure, be a great asset all round if we could.

How many games has there been trouble at?
Just that one really, and we've had far bigger attendances.

There have been a number that could have bubbled over to that in recent seasons, and plenty nipped in the bud. Identification could reduce that drastically.
