Extra segregation to avoid East Lancs derby trouble

Chorley Citizen: FLASHBACK: Police on patrol FLASHBACK: Police on patrol

MISSILE throwing by fans at last season’s East Lancashire derby at Ewood Park has led to extra segregation measures at the game next month.

Blackburn Rovers take on Burnley on Sunday, March 9, and the usual high-profile police safety measures will be in place.

However, Rovers have announced extra segregation in a bid to cut supporters’ unrest.

A spokesman for the club said: “Blackburn Rovers Football Club, together with Lancashire Police, wants to minimise the possibility of a repeat of the disorder that occurred at last season’s home fixture against Burnley, where a confrontation took place between rival sets of supporters in the corners of the stadium where they were located closest together.

“Missiles, including coins and seats, were thrown between the two sets of fans resulting in a number of personal injuries.”

The club has also announced that season ticket holders in the Darwen End will not be able to relocate to the Riverside Stand, because of problems last year.

The spokesman said: “We also had complaints last season from season ticket holders in the RFS Riverside Stand regarding the anti-social behaviour of a large number of supporters, who were not normally in that stand, which caused alarm and distress throughout the game.

“The club has worked with police to draw up a plan for the allocation of seats for both sets of supporters, aimed at minimising the potential for confrontation, which unfortunately will mean that there are some restrictions on where seats will be available for supporters who are seeking to relocate for this game.

“It is unfortunate that such restrictions are having to be imposed, but safety has to be the paramount consideration in respect of this game.”

Police confirmed the operation outside the ground would be similar to previous years, with Burnley fans bussed in from Turf Moor and taken directly to the Darwen End.

Supt Jon Puttock said: “We are working closely with both football clubs as we put plans in place for the policing operation at Ewood Park.

“At our recommendation, both clubs have agreed to use the same travel arrangements which have previously been adopted, meaning the Burnley fans will travel to Ewood Park on designated coaches.

“The policing priority for us is simple, to ensure the safety of the supporters and of those involved in the game.”

You're clearly getting confused with your usual behaviour towards close female family members and horses.

I thought the picture attached to this story would excite you somewhat.

If there is a competition for the most spelling mistakes in a post then you must be world champion.

Why anyone would listen to somebody (i.e. YOU) who is quite clearly as thick as a whale omelette is a question you need to ask yourself before taking the time to write such drivel.

My favourites were that you could spell neither neck or toilet!

Behave like hooligans then they will no doubt get treated the same way. It's a shame that those who go to watch the game and not cause trouble get treated the same as the minority that do cause the problems. If the extra measures and policing minimises injuries to people and damage to property then I'm for it!
I'm sure we'd only have something to say if someone was seriously hurt or a town got trashed again that the club and police didn't do enough!
Can't do no right !!!!

agree on the plastic bottle - but a pensioner that sits near me on the riverside, got knocked over by those idiots on the concourse and was really shaken up and has not been back to ewood since.

i was really surprised that throughout the whole game those idiots were allowed to occupy the area by the floodlight at the darwen end of the riverside. i know its a local derby - but the vast majority of them were not even watching the game.

if their idiots want to fight our idiots - can't they do it at an agreed time on the spare land behind the riverside on the understanding that none of them (rovers or dingles) are allowed to go to A&E afterwards?

I agree with you. What follows is not an attack, I am just curious what your opinion is.

What do you think would happen if Burnley and Blackburn fans organised a march together through the streets of a town. Do you think there'd be no trouble? Personally, I think it would be an absolute disaster.

If there wasn't heavy police segregation how do you think it would go? I can't imagine there wouldn't be anything other than loads of trouble.

The rivalry is, for some strange reason, particularly fierce. It may not be Rangers and Celtic but it's certainly not Huddersfield and Hull.

I can't imagine there'd be no fighting.

I'm no fan of the police but they do have it right on this one.

What follows is not an attack, I am just curious what your opinion is. What do you think would happen if Burnley and Blackburn fans organised a march together through the streets of a town. Do you think there'd be no trouble? Personally, I think it would be an absolute disaster. If there wasn't heavy police segregation how do you think it would go? I can't imagine there wouldn't be anything other than loads of trouble. The rivalry is, for some strange reason, particularly fierce. It may not be Rangers and Celtic but it's certainly not Huddersfield and Hull. I can't imagine there'd be no fighting. I'm no fan of the police but they do have it right on this one. Mr.J.Jambone

Way back in the 70 's I witnessed an almighty scrap on Melbourne St in Accy. Rovers were playing Bury and Burnley were at home so people were queuing for the Ribble buses to both Burnley and Bury. There were innocent non football people with women and children mixed in both queues.Several people including a child were injured when the Rovers fans attacked the Burnley fans.
It was not funny and bricks and stones were thrown through the bus window
I was there and off duty as it were as I was not going to the Bury game, but I was talking to some of the Burnley fans who were friends of mine.
I ended up having to defend myself from one of the Rovers fans...
So yes, we need segregation and good policing at the Derby

If both Clubs and the police were really serious about improving safety for the fans then they would not allow the sale of alcohol on the concourse for this game. Not only did it increase the drunken loutish behaviour but it also caused a serious crush safety risk on the concourse. However, alcohol will be sold because of the profit that is made from the sale of it which outweighs any safety concerns. SHAME on BOTH clubs and the POLICE for not collaborating and agreeing that alcohol will not be sold. It's a case of profit comes before safety.

I hope they are policing the toilets at the DARWEN end, as in all previous fixtures they will be destroyed by the Neanderthal knuckle draggers.
You should offer to help out policing the toilets, your experience of frequenting these establishments (usually after dark) and getting "hands on" would be invaluable.

Anyone causing trouble should be banned from attending a match for 12 months. Any attempt to breach this should carry 12 months imprisonment.

That way the real fans could get on with enjoying what promises to be an interesting match!
