SWINDON Town have this evening released a statement warning fans that use pyrotechnics at the County Ground that they face lengthy bans.

The club have noted that at the last two home games, against MK Dons and Millwall, that pyrotechnics have been used in the Town End.

As a result, the club could face sanctions from the Football League and the Football Association which could lead to the club facing severe financial penalties.

The football club have therefore urged fans to restrain from such actions, which include the use of flares and smoke bombs, with a threat of stadium bans.

The statement reads: “During the last two home matches, we have seen the use of pyrotechnics (flares/smoke canisters) and other objects in the Town End which has meant that the club could likely face a severe penalty.

“The club reiterates that any fan who is involved in any incident involving dangerous objects being used will face a lengthy banning period from The County Ground Stadium.”

The club have also had a witness come forward with regard to the incident during the MK Dons game and are asking for any other supporters with information in relation to the last two home games to contact the club by emailing Karenr@swindontownfc.co.uk as soon as possible.
