Club Calls On Fans To Improve Behaviour In Ponty End Stand

BARNSLEY Football Club has called on fans to improve their behaviour after incidents including the smashing of seats and releasing of smoke canisters.

A club statement said a small group of supporters in the CK Beckett Stand - traditionally known as the 'Ponty End' - had been causing trouble at recent home matches.

Twitter was littered with messages about 'heavy-handed' stewarding following the last home match against Ipswich, which saw the Reds leave with a draw having been 2-0 up.

The statement said: "It is very important that, as a club, supporters and stewards can work together to prevent these issues continuing to take place.

"To have policing within Oakwell will greatly increase our match day operational costs, which will have a direct implication on our playing budget as would any fines from the FA."
