Away Fan Behaviour

21 August 2014

Preston North End have received a letter from the FA in relation to recent fan behaviour at away matches.

Whilst it is widely accepted and appreciated that Preston North End have a terrific away following in League One, recently a small minority of our travelling fan base have caused problems for the Club and the vast majority of our excellent supporters.

In light of events at Scunthorpe United on Saturday, whereby minor vandalism and pitch encroachment occurred, the Club have received a letter from the Football Association in relation to the behaviour of a small number of our fans.

The Club now need to respond to these charges and sanctions could include financial penalties which would of course be to the detriment of our playing squad which ultimately hinders our chances of promotion back to the Championship – something everyone associated with Preston North End is striving towards.

The ground safety department at North End, in conjunction with Lancashire Constabulary are looking to identify those responsible.

We urge this small minority to please behave respectfully and to back the manager and the players like the vast majority of our support do when visiting other stadiums so we can all move forward together.
