We are Calling on all Swindon Town and Gillingham Supporters to show some common sense and to refrain from participating in similar violence seen in Gillingham on 14th January.
In Town's 3-0 thumping at the hand's of Gillingham a select few 'fan's' left after Gill's 2nd goal and waited outside of Priestfield's Medway Stand, which is a family stand and decided to take their frustration's out on Gillingham's supporters. There was also talk of both set's of fans throwing bottles, coins etc and some fan's being ejected for racially abusing players. There were also reports of violence in the Town Centre which also petrified innocent people just trying to shop.
8 arrest's were made and football safety officer's blamed Swindon for this hooliganism. Rumour's ran around saying that Swindon 'fans' were chasing and assaulting women and children, to which a select few Gills fans have sworn revenge. Some of the yobs from both teams have entitling the Swindon/Gillingham fixture on 14th February 'The St. Valentine's Day Massacre'.
We are calling on both set's of fan's to show common sense and to just enjoy the match and leave their frustrations inside the ground. Their is no room for this yobbish culture in this game. Not only do fans suffer, but your club does as well.
Due to this idiocy , Swindon Town Football Club will be out of pocket by a considerable amount of money now having to pay for extra police, stewards etc. IF any other violence breaks out it is quite possible that the clubs may recieve a hefty fine from The FA and the Football League. Something both teams cannot afford to have happen.
We would also call on fan's to use common sense when making their way to the County Ground, with many Gillingham fan's, no doubt choosing to walk from the Railway Station along Manchester Road to the County Ground. We would advise that Swindon fan's chose a different route as tensions will be running high on the night, and this would perhaps also help to prevent any trouble outside the ground.
