Fans of Torquay FC plan to demonstrate about their board of directors with a riot and pitch invasion.
After getting destroyed by local rivals Yeovil Town, fans have informed Global247news how they plan a full demonstration and pitch invasion whilst also preparing to storm the boardroom at the next home game, at any cost.
‘ We will invade the pitch during the next home, and we plan to invade the boardroom afterwards.
‘ The Yeovil defeat was the last straw – this club is falling apart at the seams, and it’s the board’s fault’, claimed one of the protesting fans.
Meanwhile, the Club’s directors have issued a public statement to all supporters, preparing to demonstrate and riot during and after the match.
The statement released reads:
Torquay United AFC wishes to issue the following statement to supporters.
Having been aware of a fans forum held this evening, the Club is concerned to learn of a directive issued by Nick Brodrick, Chairman of the Torquay United Supporters Trust, encouraging supporters of the Club to partake in a planned protest during the forthcoming home match against Tonbridge Angels at Plainmoor on December 2nd.
Whilst everyone at TUAFC recognises that football is a passionate sport and fully appreciates that all supporters are entitled to voice their own opinions, the Club strongly condemns the instigating of disruptive, anti-social, or criminal behaviour, such as pitch invasions and the throwing of missiles, which puts the safety of players, staff, officials and fellow supporters at risk.
Torquay United AFC has worked hard to establish itself as a family-friendly Football Club, and we are proud that Plainmoor is now regarded as a stadium where home and away supporters can watch matches in a safe and welcoming environment.
The Club will not tolerate any action groups take to threaten or intimidate others, and appropriate action will be taken against all individuals caught participating in such activities.
Everybody at Plainmoor – Chairman, Directors, Management, Staff and Players – is determined to bring success to this Football Club and return Torquay United AFC to its rightful place in the EFL as soon as possible.
The Club is immensely proud of our loyal Yellow Army, and everyone at TUAFC will be doing everything possible to reward our fantastic fanbase with promotion back to the National League at the end of this season.
