Club Statement 10th October 2023
During our last two fixtures there have been instances where items have been thrown onto the field of play whilst the game is going on.
Supporters are reminded that it is a specific offence for someone to throw anything towards the playing area.
It is also an offence to throw anything towards an area in which spectators or other people are, or may be present.
We have received a report from the FA via the match officials at our recent FA Cup home game against Enfield Town that items were thrown in the direction of players, and today we have received a second similar report following items being thrown onto the pitch following our FA Trophy game at Bromsgrove Sporting.
We are actively trying to identify those in the crowd that have committed these offences through video and photographic footage. Anyone identified may be subject to a stadium banning order.
These acts must stop now or there could be serious repercussions for the club.
We believe that the Grove, and any football ground should be a place that anyone should feel safe to visit, without fear of harm, hatred, or discrimination of any kind.
If anyone has any information on these occurrences please contact the club, all correspondence will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
