A Plea From Me
#1

To all City Fans

I can now remove myself from my Operational Director role for the National League after concluding my inspection today.

I am pleased that the Club has now received FULL permission to admit spectators as of Tuesday evening. The figure of 978 allocated is in line with other comparable clubs so do not be disappointed in that number. I wish the Club great success and I considered it to have been an honour to have played a small part during the past 13 odd years in keeping it going to be able to arrive at this momentous time when fans can at long last return to Meadow Park or should I say the New Meadow Park. 

It is your stadium so treat it with respect.

My main plea is please cooperate with every thing that you are asked to do. Stick to the Code of Conduct and above all else, for you own benefit, others benefit and the good name of the Club you do need to comply with Covid-19 regulations imposed on the game by Government, PLEASE PLEASE do not break social distancing when in the stadium. All matches are being streamed and I can tell you that these are being looked at to establish how clubs and more importantly fans are behaving. This is a new world and you must forget old habits.

Although fans have only been allowed back in since 2nd December two Clubs have already had their Covid capacity reduced by their Local Authority for non compliance behaviour. The ground has been segregated into four areas to help avoid some of the most obvious breaches of social distancing regulations seen elsewhere. Jody and his team have been checking on best practice around the country. If you do not comply then it is the Club and the other fans that will suffer. 

New Tiers will be announced on Wednesday and I can tell you having responsibility for Covid for the National League, Tier allocation reflects the attitudes shown in their community. It is not just bad luck.

People at the Club, including many volunteers have made it happen. Be proud of what you have. The future is bright but embrace the journey and do nothing to damage the Club.

I think you're preaching to the converted here Colin but agree, hopefully everyone sticks to the rules and are able to increase in the future.

A big responsible job for the stewards to make sure that supporters abide by the  covid rule's, as well as supporter's as well .

So wear yellow & red bring anything yellow & red and let’s make it a wall of noise!

Thank you Brandman for some excellent advice for all those fans attending the forthcoming New Meadow Park home games and beyond.  Of course all Stewards on duty will be vigilant but I also hope they will have the support of surrounding fans if and when others are being asked to respect social distancing ruling ?  I notice Neil felt it prudent to remind you that he thought you were preaching to the converted.  Clearly he feels this way but IMO his comment falls way off target since we all know of what could happen since not everyone will be on the same wavelength during and throughout our passionate game ?

I too have waited 13 years to watch my team at New Meadow Park but as a vulnerable Septuagenarian feel it is too soon for me to put myself at risk - but that is my personal decision to make and oh how I will envy those 'T' Enders on the terraces !

I just hope everyone has a fantastic time in a very safe way and of course we get the result we all want - both on and off the pitch.

Weymouth fans were a disgrace last week and there has been some very suspect social distancing going at other games I have seen.

Well done to Jody, Rob and everyone else at the club who enabled us to get the SAG approval, many clubs seem to be failing this hurdle

Agree, have to say I think that’s a great result being allowed almost 1000 in for the first game, I just hope it’s a sell out.

Yeah we certainly seem to be much better prepared than others which is great to see.
