New security procedures

In light of a recent security review, we would like to advise fans that the club will be taking a proactive approach to supporter safety and we ask that all fans are patient and comply with stewards' requests when entering, once inside and on leaving the stadium.

Please ensure all coats and jackets are open and ready to be searched, and we would advise avoiding bringing any bags with you to the stadium unless it is absolutely necessary, as this may slow your entry, and that of other supporters, to the stadium.
