Etiquette regarding the astroturfs
November 4, 2003 - 00:00
#*GLASS# It is strictly forbidden to take glass into the playing confines of either pitch; i.e. past either the bottom gate of pitch two or the main gate onto pitch 1. The bar has an ample supply of plastic glasses. Please ask for one if you intend to spectate on a playing surface. #*SHARP OBJECTS# Any object that could penetrate the artificial turf is also forbidden, e.g. chair legs, high heels!! etc.. #*CHILDREN# At a recent cup game on pitch 2, there was an incident where a player accidently skyed the ball at speed towards the spectators. Although no-body was hurt, there were many children sitting on the side of the pitch taking no interest in the game. Needless to say, one of them could easily of been seriously hurt. Parents are reminded, that when spectating on a playing surface, children must be supervised at all times. Alternatively, DO NOT bring them onto the pitch!!
