Safe Standing petition

The PST believe football fans at all levels of the game should have the choice to stand or sit at football grounds and as such are fully supportive of West Bromwich Albion’s application to install more than 3,000 rail seats in the Smethwick End at the Hawthorns.

Unfortunately their application was rejected by the Sports Minister Tracey Crouch. Compounding the disappointment of the decision, Crouch said that she wanted to see current regulations, prohibiting persistent standing, more strictly enforced and labelled those campaigning for change to the legislation a “vocal minority”!

Her comments have caused a backlash from supporters and even the Football Safety Officers Association (FSOA) have publicly criticised the Government’s stance on the issue, claiming a pilot at West Brom would be a “perfect opportunity to gather much-needed data” on rail seating.

The PST are backing this petition and hope you will sign this petition.

Former Posh defender Ron Cooper dies

The PST were sad to hear of the recent passing away of ex-Posh player Ron Cooper.

Born 28th August 1938 in Thorney, Peterborough, Ron who was two-footed and could play anywhere in defence, played a total of 163 games for the Posh is truly a legend in his own right. Older fans remember him fondly as part of that fabled 1965 FA Cup side that reached the 6th Round, sweeping aside Arsenal and Swansea along the way.

After leaving Posh, Ron had a couple of seasons with Corby Town and then, a four-year stay at Stamford, where he renewed his relationship with Stamford boss Norman Rigby, a former Posh colossus.

Our thoughts and condolences go to Ron’s family at this very sad time.

Please consider signing this petition

Whilst the Posh Supporters Trust have no concerns with Peterborough United and we are fully supportive of the Chairman, the situation is not the same at other clubs.

Blackpool are a club who have suffered under poor ownership and their fans have witnessed first-hand how the league and F.A. appear unable to act under their current rules and regulations. The Blackpool Supporters Trust have in recent years done fantastic work to highlight these problems as well as fighting for a change of ownership. Frustration has led them to create this petition to encourage Government to create an independent regulator, thus ensuring that clubs can no longer be mistreated, and supporters have somewhere to turn when all else fails.
