EFL Ruling on Stevenage

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 26/10/2017

THE EFL have decided not to take action against Stevenage over allegations that stewards made female Grimsby Town fans show their bras after they had "undertaken a comprehensive review".

Following the complaint, the EFL launched a review and has concluded: "On receipt of detailed observations from both clubs, the EFL can confirm that no specific action is to be taken under its rules.

"The EFL will, however, continue to work with all its clubs to ensure that attending matches remains an enjoyable, positive experience for supporters and, to assist, will be issuing updated guidance regarding a number of safety, security and stewarding matters."

Stevenage justified the searches saying it was thought prohibited items were likely to be brought to the ground and could be passed on to those "deemed less likely to be searched, such as women and younger supporters".

The whole incident is typical of the contempt shown to the paying supporter, without which there would be no atmosphere and no spectacle. Away fans are treated as an inconvenience by many clubs, as irritations and security menaces rather than paying guests.
