I would like to thank the trust for writing this letter on behalf of the Town supporters.

I have supported Town home and away for over forty years, visiting over 100 different grounds. Sadly, over the years, i  have come to accept that searching of fans is necessary on some occasions.

However, what I witnessed yesterday was, quite frankly, disgusting. Decent folk being treated as criminals. I had in my possession a mobile phone, wallet, and house and car keys which I obligingly showed the steward. After a full body search, the steward then wanted to check every key on the key ring!!.All this with a police officer standing a yard away.

The whole experience was intimidating and bizarre - and that's coming from a 'hardened' away supporter.

It will be interesting to read the response from Stevenage FC.

Can I suggest that unless we get a full apology from Stevenage FC ,

We do a boycott of any more games at Stevenage until they admit our supporters are not a threat to their safety or liable to cause an any offence that might be considered to be against the law.

Speaking personally, I suspect they would see that as a win Pete. Judging by the attitudes to us yesterday, I suspect they'd be over the moon if we boycotted.

Well if they can afford to lose say £20,000 pound in gate money and beer money who cares ?

Good letter. Shocked at what happened. Arriving late I didn't see any of this.

You'd have thought after the recent success in the Hillsborough tragedy campaign, authorities, clubs and police would have learned lessons.

Actually a male steward in a female toilet isn't as bad as a female steward in a men's toilet if I'm honest... Women have doors on every toilet whereas we use urinals in the open.

I have just been informed that the Stevanage police are congratulating themselves on a highly successful operation on Saturday, due to prior police intelligence (don't laugh) there screening process allowed them to confiscate various offensive articles, these included, 7 flasks, 4 bags of Wurthers Originals, 14 Mars Bars, and 3 blankets.

Good job Mariners Trust. I didn't go but this is disgraceful. I certainly won't ever be going to Stevenage.
