Club Statement: South Shields vs Radcliffe

The club is greatly looking forward to Saturday’s Pitching In Northern Premier League fixture against Radcliffe at 1st Cloud Arena, which falls on Non-League Day.

It promises to be an important match in the battle for promotion as the teams occupying the top two positions in the table go head-to-head.

A large crowd is expected, and we can confirm the two sets of supporters will be segregated at the fixture.

Radcliffe supporters will be able to enter through turnstiles 3 and 4, with turnstiles 1, 2, 5 and 6 designated for Shields fans. Radcliffe fans can purchase tickets online now and by card payments only on the day. Any supporter found to be in the wrong section will be ejected from the ground.

Although this is not an all-ticket match, supporters are strongly encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to help ease queuing on matchday, and to avoid the prospect of disappointment in the event capacity is reached. Tickets can be secured by clicking here.

The club also reminds supporters that the possession and use of pyrotechnics and smoke bombs is strictly prohibited.

Being in possession of a pyrotechnic device at a football match, or attempting to bring a pyrotechnic device into a football stadium, is a criminal offence under the Sporting Events (Control of Alcohol etc) Act 1985.

It is important to highlight that these items are not only illegal inside a football stadium, but they can also cause great harm to people.

Pyrotechnics and flares can burn at up to 2,000°C and can cause significant injuries to carriers and fellow spectators.

The club is proud to have a large fanbase which supports its team with great passion, but it is vital that the law is strictly adhered to, for the safety of all supporters.

Any breaches could result in the issue of banning orders, criminal charges and fines to the club. These sanctions can also be extended to accompanying parents or guardians of children who take part in such activities.

As the season reaches a crucial stage, we again reiterate that entering the field of play – before, during or after a match – is strictly prohibited and individuals who break this rule run the risk of sanctions.

Let’s ensure that Saturday is a true celebration of non-league football and that the two teams are supported in the right way, for the betterment of all connected to the clubs, including all supporters.
