Peterborough Paint Statement
Peterborough Paint Statement
Monday, 11th Mar 2013 10:29

Peterborough United have released a statement regarding the paint problems at Saturday’s game at London Road in which they have said they will pay for affected items of clothing to be dry cleaned. Fans of both Posh and the Blues had their clothes marked by paint from the walls of the stands during the match which ended 0-0.

The statement reads: “Following recent excessive rain and damp weather conditions, some painted wall areas in the home and away terraces experienced localised deterioration which resulted in a chalky surface film forming which caused problems with clothing on contact. For information, these areas were last painted in the close season.

“We apologise to any supporters who were affected by this anomaly and are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

“We have been informed that these marks can be washed out but will reimburse the dry-cleaning cost of an individual item upon receiving a single item receipt only with the item named and the cleaning company name and contact details on the receipt.

"We will be contacting supporters as soon as possible with further details.”

Well if anyone gets any compensation I guess you could go out and paint the town red!

I'm more worried if it ASBESTOS or LEAD paint! Be bit more than cleaning bills they will have to worry about.

yeah, I'm sure in the 2012 close season they use asbestos/lead paint. your name is surprisingly accurate.

Is it coming directly out of Clegg's bank account?

imalwayswrong (and you are) - you'll just have to wash your hoodie and chinos asbestos you can.

What colour was the paint? I'll see if I've got any old clothes with paint on kicking around...

It was white paint - bit of soap and water did the trick

And some got in the Refs eyes when he missed that pen

Although in happy with the flaming of user name..... Localised deterioration infers flaking or damp damage. As football stadia of the era painting over a previous surface is ok if deterioration does not occur..... Asbestos paint is still very common in buildings. It's funny that Peterborough have tendered their stand twice in last year for replacement and the asbestos survey was not a slim document.

imalwayswrong - try and think posh-itive. You'll be ok.
At least it wasn't yellow and green scum you got on your away shirt.
