Torquay United issue statement amid fan protest concerns
Torquay United have released a statement following a Fan's Forum where the idea of an organised fan protest was discussed.
The statement addressed this by saying, "Whilst everyone at TUAFC recognises that football is a passionate sport, and fully appreciates that all supporters are entitled to voice their own opinions, the Club strongly condemns the instigating of disruptive, anti-social, or criminal behaviour, such as pitch invasions and the throwing of missiles, which puts the safety of players, staff, officials and fellow supporters at risk."
"The Club will not tolerate any action taken by groups to threaten or intimidate others, and appropriate action will therefore be taken on all individuals caught participating in any such activities."
"Everybody at Plainmoor – Chairman, Directors, Management, Staff and Players – are determined to bring success to this Football Club and return Torquay United AFC back to its rightful place in the EFL as soon as possible."
"The Club is immensely proud of our loyal Yellow Army, and everyone at TUAFC will be doing everything possible to reward our wonderful fanbase with promotion back to the National League at the end of this season."
