Apologies if this has been confirmed or not but, didn't Stevanage state that it was information from a GTFC official that initiated the searches, has this been confirmed or denied?

Quoted from Gaffer58
The EFL, Stevanage and it saddens me to say this but also GTFC want this to go away, and the various obstacles that are springing up may mean they get their wish. The only way I see any conclusion that would suit the fans was if an individual was prepared to make an official complaint to Herts police stating sexual harassment, the police are scared stiff of appearing to ignore these type of complaints, but after this length of time I doubt this will now happen. So we all, and every supporter in general have to accept that attending a football match mean that you can be treated worse than an animal and your human rights are non existent.


We don't have to accept that at all and nor should we. I returned home late last night after attending all five days of the Headingley Test match. Each morning, as I went through the security checks and bag searches, I was greeted courteously by staff who carried out their duties efficiently and professionally. If Stevenage learned from this experience and improved the standard of their stewarding, I would consider that a success. However, I fear there is still an institutional culture within authority that seeks to treat football supporters as criminals or hooligans. The game has broadly moved on from the 1980s. It's a shame many of those who hold power don't appear to have done the same.

More broadly, though, I think our cause is helped by other cases of fans being wrongly treated, as appears to have been the case at Bournemouth at the weekend. The more we protest, the more we ensure we cannot be ignored. I personally have joined the Football Supporters Federation following the Stevenage debacle and I would urge all other Town fans to do the same.

Hilarious........!!!

When all this kicked off Stevenage asked for all our issues/complaints to be emailed to them, below after numerous reminders from me this was their response,

"Thank you for your views which have been noted. The Club has responded to all issues made by Grimsby Town FC supporters directly to the EFL and the SLO of Grimsby Town FC in what it believes to be the correct protocol between EFL clubs. Please refer to GTFC should you require any further information".

Looks like they have taken tin pot to a new level!!


So it looks like Kristine has the formal response. I assume they don't know she is also a Trust board member.

I guess the response is being looked into with the view of formal leagal action.

The silence from Fenty Towers is deafening. Time to stand up and be counted John.




Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Due to Stevenages approach to searching womens Bra's they have got a new theme tune as a club anthem.



What is JF doing about how our fans have been treated, are you not bothered Fenty?


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

There are probably people out there who think that Grimbarians admire the houses down Bragate.

I am not 'in the know' by any means. But I am guessing that the silence so far from Kristine, GTFC etc could be a good thing.  It's far too big to be ignored and to be fair, Kristine has kept us informed up to now. I would hope that things are moving behind the scenes and given the stance from Stevenage they would probably threaten some kind of legal action if we make public accusations without substance.  Therefore caution in any public statement would be advised. We have all seen what happens when we rush our PR dept. It's not always wise.  I would give the club at least till the end of the week as they may well be seeking legal advice.  This is total supposition on my part. I have no connection with anyone involved, but it seems like common sense to me.


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

I received exactly the same response this afternoon. I am currently drafting a reply and will be making all relevant bodies aware of Stevenage FC's continuing refusal to take this matter seriously.


I have a response that can be sent in reply if you would like it?
