What a crazy last 24hrs. You may have seen or read the news about the issues at Stevenage on BBC Sport or talkSPORT or the Daily Mirror or one of the myriad of other publications. It was the most read story on the BBC yesterday! We even made ELLE and mumsnet.com!
We’re still yet to receive a reply from Stevenage F.C., but we’d like to issue this additional statement based on their reports to the media last night. We will keep members informed as and when we receive a reply from Stevenage F.C.
“Although we have yet to receive any correspondence from Stevenage, we have seen their statement. We note they do not deny any of the allegations made and we would welcome contact from them when they have concluded their investigation.
“We were very surprised to see they claim not to have been made aware of the issues on the day, as they were tweeted by several supporters during the match (these tweets remain in the public domain) and issues were raised directly with numerous stewards and Hertfordshire Police.
“We also note the contents of the statement made by Grimsby Town which contradicts the account given by Stevenage FC.
“We hope such a family-orientated club will treat these allegations with the seriousness they deserve and we look forward to hearing from them once their investigations have been completed.”
