Newcastle United Release Official Statement On Derby Trouble

9 years ago

Following the events on Sunday when Sunderland visited St.James’ Park, the club have released an official statement.

Newcastle United are promising to impose lifetime bans all of those people found guilty of being involved in the trouble in events surrounding the derby match.

This is the NUFC official statement, short but to the point;

We were embarrassed and appalled by the behaviour of a minority of so-called fans who last night were involved in disturbances and disorder in Newcastle city centre after the match.  

Newcastle United have been working with Northumbria Police, and will continue to do so, in order to identify all of the individuals concerned.

The Club will take the strongest possible action against those involved in the disturbances and will impose immediate lifetime bans on all those found guilty.

These deplorable individuals have no place at Newcastle United and bring shame on the Club and the vast majority of its proper, law-abiding, fans.
