Three Banning Orders have today been issued following incidents during the recent home fixtures against Solihull Moors and Ebbsfleet United.

CEO Graham Bean said: “One Banning Order is for a period of ten years and the other two are three-year bans.

"The club continues to work with the authorities in relation to the identification of other offenders and it is anticipated that further Banning Orders will be issued in due course.

"Disorder on matchdays, including pitch encroachment, will not be tolerated by the club and the swift action we have taken shows how seriously we take such matters.

"Incidents such as the ones we have experienced could have serious repercussions for the club and we will not hesitate to take further action, if necessary.”

The following tariff is implemented with immediate and retrospective effect and brought to the attention of all supporters:
