Police Issue Playford Road Protest Statement
Tuesday, 16th Feb 2021 14:56

Suffolk Constabulary have issued a statement in relation to yesterday’s Blue Action protest at Playford Road.

The demonstration, which took place outside the perimeter of the training ground, led to signage on the fence catching fire after it was hit by a flare. As a result, training was suspended for 10 minutes as a safety precaution.

The statement reads: “Police were called at 10.30am yesterday (Monday 15th February) to reports of a number of people setting off flares on Playford Road in Ipswich.
“Those involved reportedly left the scene on foot, heading towards Rushmere Heath.
“Police attended and searched the area but found no trace of any suspects. Enquiries are ongoing.
“Anyone with any information about this incident or who saw anything at the time is asked to contact the Police quoting incident number 88 of Monday 15th February.”

Perhaps the Police will stumble across the search for the green shoots in their look out

Diplomacy reigns in Suffolk ! Sherlock will keep looking ,and maybe call out the dogs later !
Doubtless forensics will be examining any ashes or evidence or DNA — if budgets allow .
Come on ! Who’s going to get overly stressed ?

I doubt if we would have created any goal scoring chances in those ten mins?

Hope they catch them and give them a life ban from Portman Road. I bet they are Norwich fans anyway.

odd that fans letting off those flares at matches [weve all seen them] arent investigated .

timetraveler added 16:28 - Feb 16
Sorry, but for me Blue Action have lost all credibility with this illegal and dangerous incident. As have those making light of the matter on this forum.
Just my personal opinion

mountains being made out of mole hills. Maybe these lads were paid by evans and dickhead ?????

Thanks for that - now sit down and have a cup of tea before all the excitement gives you a funny turn.

Luckily, only a couple of minor knocks - hamstrings/groins - sustained by the police attending the training ground. Should be fit for duty in around 6 weeks!

Lets see a picture of this fire damage then?

dukey44 added 16:58 - Feb 16
That's bug.. gered Evans Green shoots... As don't know of anyone that's seen them anyway..

I'm not buying this fire nonsense until I see photo evidence.

Lock them up Richard Heads

ACAB. Any publicity is good publicity on this front. #PRPaulOut

Mountain and molehill spring to mind

The flares was a silly idea and led to an unfortunate accident, but all this hand wringing and supercilious "idiots/pathetic/ban them for life" stuff is also just as silly. Calm down everyone. Look at what the state of our club is doing to us, we're turning on each other for goodness sake.

Edmundo added 18:04 - Feb 16
Agree that this was a step too far. Also agree that we shouldn't let the clowns that run our club try to take the moral high ground and divide the fans.
