Club Statement: Pitch Encroachment

Club Statement: Pitch Encroachment

Walsall FC have released a statement via their official website urging supporters not to encroach onto the field of play as they and the club could face penalties, with the club also reminding fans that they may also be forced to take action.
The statement, released via www.Saddlers.co.uk, reads; Walsall Football Club would like to remind fans that encroachment onto the pitch is a criminal offence and will be taken very seriously when it happens.

In recent weeks, most notably following our goals against Coventry City on Saturday, a number of supporters entered the field of play and CCTV footage is now being reviewed by the club and the necessary authorities to identify the individuals who ran onto the pitch.

While we appreciate that emotions run high, we cannot and will not tolerate this behaviour. The safety of the players and officials is of paramount importance at all times. This behaviour cannot continue.

The necessary action will be taken against the individuals who are identified as the club will not tolerate this kind of behaviour moving forward.
