Club working with British Transport Police after complaints over anti-social behaviour on rail after Peterborough trip

Ipswich Town would like to make it clear that it will take appropriate action against any supporter found to have shown anti-social behaviour while attending games using the rail network.

The Club is currently working closely with the British Transport Police and the Suffolk Police to identify anyone who was involved in reported incidents at Peterborough station last weekend after Blues’ 2-2 draw at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Town have acted after receiving concerns raised by Blues fans as well as members of the public who were caught up in incidents while travelling by rail last Saturday.  

“We are working closely with the police on a number of incidents and we will see what evidence materialises,” Town secretary, Stuart Hayton, told the Club website.

“We have said before that our fans are among the best behaved in the country and we are talking about a small minority here but there have been incidents reported to us recently that we have to act on and we will.”

Any supporter showing anti-social behaviour can expect to receive a Club ban, with the possibility of police taking action that could result in court proceedings and football banning orders being issued.

Town supporters can report any incidents which make them feel uncomfortable whilst travelling to and from games by texting British Transport Police on 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40.
