    Seen an article describing how Rochdale fans invaded the pitch and got in our players faces. This is following on from the scenes against Oldham when 50-100 fans jumped on running around with no consequence.

    All the while the DRE is surrounded like it’s harbouring America’s most dangerous criminals.

    Get a grip FFS whoever is running the security. It’s bad enough getting tonked every week, never mind watching away fans dance around the pitch every time they score.

    We can’t understand why so many stewards were standing in front of our fans on the Doncaster Road end terrace and yet hardly any in front of the away end. What on earth is going on. Yet recently the away fans are being allowed to invade the pitch. Who on earth is in charge of the stewarding. Is it down to Swann not wanting any demonstrations on the pitch at the end of the matches. It was making our fans look really hostile with all these stewards in front of them particularly near the end of the match today. I feel this is another way of alienating our supporters.

    It was amusing yet also worrying how the stewards waited for the lad in the grey top to finish celebrating the Rochdale winner then, in his own time when it suited him, politely helped him back over the wall. What’s wrong in throwing the law breaking twat out? We are soft as shit with dick heads in this country, respecting his rights? Piss off.

    Some years ago I put this very question to David Beeby.
    I got fobbed off, of course, but the main point he made was that if someone was arrested, that tied up resources for dealing with others.

    Doesn’t seem to affect other clubs when we play away, where I’ve witnessed some of the most hostile stewarding.

    But Beeby and that grinning ex-copper who was then head of security, were adamant.

    The Rochdale forum was enlightening. Many of their fans are not happy with the behaviour of some of their supporters yesterday, and they haven’t been for a while. They have claimed that the trouble causers were openly dealing drugs in the toilets before the game, swearing and abusing families in the away end and that one of the stewards shook the hand of one of them after the pitch invasion :-O

    Iron Trust want your views on stewarding: –

    “We’ve also had comments about the stewarding at home games: some members have commented about the stewarding making matters worse on occasion. We’d like to have your views on this, particularly if you stand on the home end terrace as that is where the problems seem to be.”

    Let them know at

    Still happening today the hostile stewarding away. Especially Hartlepool and Mansfield this season. We maybe need to pay a bit more and get better quality steward’s lots of clubs employ people who relish their job.

    Really?
    Relish their job like the Canadian coppers in Ottawa?

    I hope not.

    Mind, that is what socialism gets you: do as we day or get beaten up.🙄

    Interesting how when Insulate Britain protesters block roads and disturb economies and jobs they need clamping down on, but it’s a horror when the authorities clamp down on right wing protesters. :-)

    They were sniffing coke in the Farmhouse toilets. Sounded like a doctors waiting room!

    When did we get so precious about the pitch? Who cares if a few people come on the pitch to celebrate a goal?

    Ok, when did football fans become so keen on rigid enforcement of rules?

    Seems it happened against Oldham, now Rochdale and if the referee has reported it then the club could get fined !! So it does matter.

    But it shows what interest there is down there now – none.

    Just having read an article in the Daily Mail stating that our Club could be looking at an FA enquiry regarding the recent pitch invasions versus Rochdale and Oldham, this says it all about our Club. Disgraceful stewarding.They have started putting 80% of the stewards in front of our home supporters on the Doncaster Road end terrace. They are making out it is Scunthorpe fans who are hostile and letting the away fans do as they please. Is this another SWANN instruction so that our fans can’t demonstrate their feelings to the BOARDROOM FAMILY at the end of matches. This is totally unacceptable and putting our players at risk with the present stewarding at the away end. Then again no leadership, when a club is rotten at the top everything follows on. A chairman who doesn’t want to be here any longer and can’t even be bothered to attend matches but berates our fans for not attending in larger numbers.

    The stewarding on Saturday has deteriorated further. When driving on to the car parks there was no steward at the end of the roadway to direct cars to either car park. So cars were turning right to go onto the main car park who shouldn’t be and the steward their was having to turn them around to go onto the east car park, possibly they were away fans, I don’t know. But this was causing cars having to queue as they couldn’t turn onto the main car park. We paid £120 for a car park bay due to disability but we hardly ever get our nominated bay near the turnstiles as people are allowed to park anywhere and 9 times out of 10 someone else is in our bay. What a shambles it is becoming.

    At least the lines got repainted pre season NLI so that’s a positive but your right about the car park, the stewardship of the hard surface car park behind the West Stand has been disgraceful for years and people pay up front for the privilege of being treated so shoddily.

    It does appear that the stewarding has been particularly poor this season, but I’d argue the worst incidents I’ve witnessed happened under the previous ownership. Remember Lincoln in the play offs or the Hull ‘sponsors’ farce? It is Swann’s problem now, of course, but there have always been issues with stewarding at GP.

    Need to open telegraph corner again,so home and away fans can concentrate on goading one another, then most of the stewards would be down there.

    And the Extinction rebellion and BLM “peaceful protests”?
