Itís two separate issues. I donít understand why they need to be treated as one and the same - and the club acknowledge that the stewarding is being investigated by both teams in the press release

Quite.

I imagine ours in in the post also. I suspect our rap sheet might be longer given the broken seats and smoke cannisters thrown onto the pitch etc.

So I'm late to this but don't Stevenage like most football clubs have CCTV? I'm hardly one for the surveillance state but is this situation not precisely what that is for?

Find the tossers who can't behave and slap them with a nice fine or a ban instead of penalising the rest of the fans/club. Whether that be Stevenage or Swindon.

Anyone who was there can request a copy of the footage. Might be worth a go.

The stewards I spoke to after the game said that there was CCTV in the away stand and anyone found guilty would get banned - although not sure whether this means banned from future Stevenage matches or STFC games. Clem said in the call with Vic on Monday that they would likely get a first and final warning and would then be banned so I assume the footage will be shared with STFC to make their decisions.

Wouldn't Stevenage also pass it to Inspector Knacker to pursue criminal damage charges?

There seems to constantly be statements for the sake of statements at the moment from all things STFC related!

Indeed and awfully quick. Yet when we needed some answers regarding a pending VC...incredibly radio silent (I know Vic did the "On The Sofa" thing the other).

Still not happy how the Trust essentially blanked us on that matter yet were very quick to tell us that Doris, 93 from Eldene can still be able to get a Matchday programme!

Iíve always wondered how they enforce a banning order.

Like if theyíve got your name and address and you have to book tickets in advance I get how you couldnít use your own name.

But then you could just get a mate to buy it. Do the people on the turnstiles have a mug shot of all those banned? How does that work in say winter if you tried to enter with a big coat, scarf and hat?

...and if you were a Town fan and banned & had mugshots on the CG turnstiles then how would that be enforced at away games?

Do STFC send mugshots of banned people to the away teams before a game?
...and say you had a complete banning order as a Town fan and you decided to go say Southampton Vs Leeds - how on earth would they know you were banned?

I suppose you are totally dependant on stewart recognition. Sometimes away stewards go to away games don't they? No idea if they are legally enforceable and its more likely that you would only be in big trouble if caught doing something when banned. If you were banned and changed your ways you may not ever get noticed

If you have a season ticket that would be cancelled - you could also not buy tickets on line.
I guess the point is that if you get into the ground having been banned and are caught doing something wrong the punishment is increased because you have breached the ban.
If you get in whilst banned and do nothing wrong presumably they donít find out youíve breached the ban unless you or someone else publish the fact somewhere - I suspect someone banned for breaking advertising hoardings might be stupid enough to post on Facebook that they went to a game while banned.

They wouldn't know if you were at another game but if it was a Town game they send it to their local police in the lead up to the game

And presumably they'd travel to certain away games just to spot people on banning orders/known troublemakers.

They check the cctv in and around the County Ground too, although that doesn't mean you'll get caught. I met someone at a game years ago and only thought after that his bam wouldn't have finished by that point.

Swindon always had one or two specific Police/Football Liason Officers that travel to every game and have a full knowledge of fans that are banned and keep an eye on them, they also now use social media to clues/pointers.

It does make sense that Swindon send a group of their own stewards to games as we used to do for many games in the early to mid 90s, especially when we are playing at small clubs whos level is not always the same as ours, especially whent hey are overwhelmed by so many travelling fans to a point they cannot cope so well.
