CLUB APPEALS FOR INFO OVER FLARE

Post by josie andrews » Mon Sep 30, 2019 6:03 pm

The Tigers are appealing for information over the recent use of incendiary devices at matches.

The club is now under investigation by the RFL for a possible breach of operational rules regarding the conduct of the crowd at the AJ Bell Stadium and the Halliwell Jones Stadium in recent play-off fixtures against Salford and Warrington.

Following the release of CCTV images from the clash against the Red Devils, the club is taking steps to identify those supporters it wishes to speak to about the incident last Thursday evening, which led to a fan requiring medical attention.

Anybody with relevant information can contact the club in strictest confidence by emailing info@castigers.com

It comes after the Tigers confirmed earlier this season that the club would be adopting a zero-tolerance approach to anybody caught using incendiary devices such as smoke bombs, fireworks and flares by home or away supporters.

The club would like to further thank the vast majority of fans for their continued support of Castleford Tigers throughout 2019 and their impeccable behaviour on matchdays.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Castleford hand out lifetime bans to supporters

Castleford Tigers have handed out two-lifetime bans following the use of an incendiary device at their play-off game with Salford.

The club thanked fans for their information regarding the incident, which helped identify the culprits.

Castleford Tigers’ Safety Officer Ian Crawford has said: “The club will continue to hand out lifetime bans to anybody found guilty of these offences.

“Letting off these devices in stadiums is causing health problems to people who are breathing in the smoke, Rugby League has had numerous incidents in the 2019 season of smoke bombs and flares being set off inside the ground, this has resulted in a number of people requiring first aid and hospital treatment after breathing in the smoke from these devices.

“The Cas fans are amongst the best in the country for getting behind the team, it is vital that we don’t allow this small minority to spoil the gameday experience for everyone else.”
