Club Statement regarding anti-social behaviour

Prescot Cables Football Club would like to remind supporters of their responsibilities whilst attending games at the Joseph Russell Stadium as well as condemning the behaviour of a small number of individuals at today's game versus Trafford FC.

Fans are reminded that spectators aged Under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult or concession unless they:

  • possess a 2023/24 Season Ticket
  • are a member of one of Prescot Cables Junior Teams/Michael Corless Soccer School.

U16s that do not fall into either of the above are not permitted to enter the Joseph Russell Stadium unaccompanied.

Sadly, there were several instances of anti-social behaviour within the stadium at todays game from younger spectators congregating without adults. These incidents are strictly prohibited and are against FA regulations.
Incidents such as these not only tarnish the reputation of Prescot Cables Football Club, they could also lead to sanctions and/or financial penalties being imposed on the club.
As such, we are taking steps to identify the individuals involved, including via mobile phone footage supplied to the club. Once identified, these individuals will be banned from attending future fixtures at the Joseph Russell Stadium.
Groups of U16s that continue to congregate without adults may be challenged by match stewards and if necessary asked to stand/sit with the adult that they entered the stadium with. Failure to comply with this request may lead to ejection from the stadium.

We know that the vast majority of our supporters condemn incidents such as those witnessed at today's game and we strongly encourage spectators to report any other instances of anti-social behaviour within the ground to a club official or match steward.
