Cliftonville Football Club have had several inquiries since our statement on Saturday in regards to events at Narrow Water.
In particular, they have asked if we intend to issue bans to those involved. The Club wish to state, that should confirmation be received of the identity of those convicted, then we would have no hesitation in banning them from our stadium.
Cliftonville have previously banned individuals from Solitude on several occasions. While this is effective in preventing entry to games at our ground, we would call on all Irish League Clubs, the Northern Ireland Football League and the Irish Football Association to help and support us in preventing all banned persons from entering all football grounds.
We also ask that the existing legislation in regards to Football Banning Orders is more readily applied.
