I was stood on the row below the two lads and actually the stewards where very polite and asked them nicely to not stand on the chair and said they're welcome to stand normally in front of it and said thank you as they walked off.

Wonder if Steve Fanthorpe is still the Safety Officer in charge there?

Maybe he can clarify why hand sanitiser wasn't allowed, why women had to partially undress in full view of all and sundry and why a woman had to supervise men going to the toilet?

This action by stewards at Steveange as well as being wholly inappropriate also asks questions about child safety and female sex abuse - not two of the things you normally associate with going to a football match.

I would hope that all the stewards concerned have had appropriate training - the Trust and / or the club should be asking just excatly what training they've had - and that they have all been police checked so as to be able to work with very young children. It beggars belief that people who are there ostensibly to actually look after the safety of fans are, by their ignorance and actions, actually endangering it.

It would perhaps be appropriate to contact other Trusts in our division who are going to have fans travelling down there to make them well informed, but also to ask that any further instances of such poor behaviour are logged and sent to the appropriate authorities?

Stevenage will undoubtedly say that everything that was done was done to conform to health and safety legislation. Again, when that happens I would ask the Trust to ask them exactly what part of the Health and Safety legislation they are actually talking about. They won't be able to answer because there is no answer to condone what went on on Saturday. Keep up the good work it makes my Trust membership mean so much more from afar.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

I suspect that Stevenage will deny the said incidents took place

Sexual assault and child abuse. Lets see how Hertfordshire Police investigate that!
