Altrincham FC First Team / Re: My thanks to the club - Great Idea!!
« on: February 27, 2022, 08:10:16 PM »
Hi All,

Today, I wish to thank the club for their new initiative that took place today. They got together a group of about 20 children, two of which were our looked-after daughters, plus a couple of the girls friends from the football team members included. They formed a flag-waving guard of honour to welcome all the players on to the pitch as the teams came out before the game. The girls were delighted to be asked, though one of them was still in her football kit from her game this morning. They drew 2-2 by the way, in a Derby match between the Altrincham FC Red Kites and the Black Kites, both teams are now in the top 3 in their football league. They also greeted the players as they came off the pitch at the end of the game, as they usually do.

The girls have had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, helped greatly by the win today. There again we all did didn't we!!

My grateful thanks to the club for the new initiative, never seen that before but what a superb idea. Kids are the future of our club.

I trust the linesman at the Popular side is ok, after his collision with the Daggers player?

Plenty ofphoto's on the clubs Facebook page Steve

Presumably, this signifies that Trafford Council may have been persuaded to increase the capacity for this fixture?

That will pay the Steward Bill  :)

If you don't want to be searched what do you have to hide ? Tins of Alcohol etc
Most places now have search procedures in place especially Manchester. Is everyone forgetting there
was a bomb attack 4 years ago.

Having worked in several stadiums over the years since leaving as Safety Officer in 2011 the J Davidson Stadium is one of the hardest to steward, No CCTV , no separate entry into different stands from outside etc,
I said when we got promoted after they started the two down from the league the stewarding should have gone more professional then due to some big clubs coming down, York, Grimsby and Wrexham but we just mainly used Volunteer stewards and depending on police information if we needed to get extra or even a police presence .
Its always been a hard role for someone to do as a Volunteer safety officer i regular used clock up 30/40 hours with matches including hosted MUFC reserves games most weeks and had first Anti Glazier protest at one of them. Risk assessments to TBC and GMP plus liaising with other clubs.
We had stewards trained to NVQ 2 and 3 in spectator safety (probably more watch the games than steward them that hold this qualification)
Myself i even completed the NVQ level 4 Spectator safety management the highest you can get,
I will gladly help the club any way i can and have been in regular contact with Bill.

It was toxic in there today. Security & stewards from all over the North West,who were rude and chaotic in their manner. No interest at all in the club.
I was moved 4 times in the first half and wasn't blocking any exit or at the front.
It is so sad and this has all come from a letter within the club. The coward should have the bottle to identify themselves. This is killing us. I am not going back until we are allowed over 3k because I am that angry/upset about it all.
That game should have been switched and any others should until this shower of sh*t passes.
The terraces look as if they have had some pointing work done and that's it.
I was told the security is costing us thousands. Really upsetting.

Going forward the club should advertise for there own stewards and SIA staff now they are paying people. probably to short notice before. The good thing about using outside agencies is if you need more they can supply them at short notice, But i do think the club should have their own core of trained stewards and SIA licensed staff.

As per the safety procedures when i was Safety officer i had to update them and rewrite a lot took me most of the summer.

One other gripe: why on earth wasn't a steward posted to patrol the Popular Side last night in order to deal with incidents when the ball went onto the terraces?

Watching our players clamber over the perimeter fencing to retrieve the ball was embarrassing. Amateurish stuff.

Amidst all the post-match ire, despair and angst, I confess there is a part of me that is somewhat relieved that our current mortifying shortcomings off the pitch won't now be exposed live on national TV on 3rd December.

Why climb the fence isn't there gates every few feet on the new fence that was put in.

Stewards retrieving balls from what i hear they needed to be showing TBC they could do their job dealing with the crowd.
