Fans of the Future Update
November 9, 2006
I reported previously that I had been in discussion with the board about under 7’s being allowed in free to all areas of the ground.
The Board remains concerned that these juniors are often left at the front and this causes a stewarding and safety problem.
However the Board is very keen to encourage fans, and particularly families, back to the Memorial Stadium. During November the Board has agreed that up to 2 under 7’s, accompanied by a paying adult, can attend free in the family enclosure and South Stand. This is a trial and the club has to make safety a priority so please parents make sure your children are properly under your control. Hopefully we can then persuade the club to extend the trial.
Please continue to let us know your views and importantly give us suggestions as to how you think families can be helped.
