Blades release statement

Last updated : 10 April 2008 By Jamie Furniss
The statement says the following:

Each local game is reviewed on its own individual circumstances with appropriate local safety advisory authorities and the police.

The descision for the Sheffield Wednesday game was taken in full consultation with all parties and reached from advice received.

The club finds comments made from visiting supporters unsuprising, but does not feel that this policy absolves those individuals from their own personal responsibilities and the wilful decision to break ground safety rules.

Much of the trouble that occurred before or after the game outside Bramall Lane appeared to have been organised in advance and had nothing to do with ticketing policy for this game.
