“Many of you will have been made aware of the incident that took place in Stirling last Saturday through social media and local / national newspaper coverage and resultantly (and unfortunately) I consider it necessary to set the record straight by correcting the ill-informed and inaccurate information that some mediums have chosen to publish.
“As highlighted by the Stirling News, there is no evidence that any Stirling Albion ‘supporters’ were involved in the incident and inference to the contrary by others is both disappointing and potentially damaging to the Club. I am pleased, however, to be able to report that Police Scotland have commented on the Forth Valley Police Division Facebook that the incident is (quote) “not thought to have involved supporters of Stirling Albion as has been suggested in recent days”.
“We have invested, and continue to invest, a huge amount of time and effort in improving our engagement with our community and I would wish to ensure everyone, but most especially families with young children, that we are utterly focused on ensuring that Forthbank is – and remains – a safe, friendly and all-inclusive environment to attend to watch Stirling Albion play.
“I would be happy to discuss this matter further with any one who may have any concerns – please contact Neil by phone (01786 450399) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the first instance and I will get back to you.”
