Don’t Do It

St Andrews

The new season kicks off on Saturday and it’s fair to say the changes that have been made at the Club over the summer have given all of us Blues supporters a lift.  Genuine excitement is in the air, and it’s been a while since that has been the case.

When things get underway though, we need to keep in mind that bad behaviour will have consequences if things aren’t necessarily going according to plan on the pitch.  And with that in mind Blues Trust wants to share again an article published recently by the Football Supporters Association (FSA).

The article is concerned with the legalities around taking pyrotechnics to games and pitch invasions.  It is an explainer on the law as it stands and an assessment of what supporters can expect if they find themselves in the criminal justice system as a result of their actions at a football match.  It is not likely to be a nice experience.

The article won’t be relevant for the overwhelming majority of Blues fans of course.  But it might just help one or two supporters if their passions begin to get the better of them.  It’s worth a read by way of a reminder….

    I totally agree with you and I plead with other fans not to ruin what has already started. These owners are serious about the club so let’s not spoil it and have them thinking that they have made a mistake by owning our club. We are a family that has just been made stronger by the new regime. We welcome Bluenoses from all over no matter of religion, colour or sexual orientation. We are all together in this so please I plead with you not to ruin it. We may be finally awoken from our never ending slumber as the new regime said ‘we are a sleeping giant”
    I know it is a only a tiny minority that takes leave of there senses and if you do feel that way then please I plead with you not to come.

      Well said Paul. I agree. We absolutely do not want the clubs name and reputation dragged through the mud because people can’t or won’t behave. Of course let’s continue to be fiercely passionate about supporting the team. Given hope, which at last we now have, it’s what Blues supporters do best. But don’t cross the line. Ever. No matter what the circumstances.

    If you take flares to a game you are not “getting carried away”, you have planned to be an idiot.

    Well said all. It’s important that the support home and away is exemplary The last thing we need is for the owners to witness, and have to address, the sort of bad behaviour by the minority that sadly has given the club a bad reputation
