THE HANDLING OF YESTERDAY'S GAME

12:00am, Tue 14th Apr 2009

The Club has received a number of emails about the handling of yesterday afternoon?s game. The Directors of Woking FC have issued the following response:

The paramount importance to Woking FC was the safety and well being of all fans during Monday?s game. The afternoon passed off with no fan being injured or any incident and the Club applauds both sets of fans for their behaviour.

The capacity of the away terrace is 1,400 fans. At 2.40pm, when it had reached 1,180, we closed that entrance and fans arriving subsequently were re-directed to seats in the main stand. There was, therefore, space for the fans to move behind the barrier, as most did. Unfortunately, and naturally, most fans were gathered towards the centre of the terrace.

The Oxford stewards were working in conjunction with Woking stewards and the Safety Officer.

In the interests of getting the game on, and not wishing to remove 50 or so fans from the ground, they ? and we as a Club ? made the decision to move a section of Oxford fans into the Woking FC end, which has caused great upset to our own fans.

Oxford United Directors were kept fully informed of the situation at all times.

We repeat that at no time was there any danger to any fan, from Oxford or Woking.

We would like to thank those Oxford fans who have written to the Club about this matter and to wish Oxford United FC good luck in their bid to reach the play-offs.
