Weymouth: Important CEO message

Jason Turner looks ahead to Weymouth fixture

22 May 2021

Supporters attending Saturday’s home match against Weymouth are advised of the following important message from our CEO Jason Turner.

So, the big day is nearly upon us! Everyone here is so excited to welcome you, our supporters, back to Meadow Lane.

After months of painstaking planning and preparation, we are all set to finally open our doors once more for what promises to be a brilliant occasion.

As a club we have done everything we can to accommodate as many supporters as possible, and to provide them with a fun, enjoyable and safe environment in which to enjoy the game.

I’m sure, like me, you have thoroughly enjoyed seeing fans return to stadia over the last week or so – not least at the Emirates FA Cup final, which proved to be quite an emotional occasion for many football fans regardless of who they support.

However, we’re aware that non-compliance with social distancing regulations within stands has been an issue at some venues and it is therefore imperative that you sit in your allocated seat. I have instructed our safety team to ensure strict compliance in this area and your cooperation is essential. An incident-free matchday will ensure the club is in a strong position should we be required to host a home play-off fixture.

Please note that the players will remain on the pitch at the end of the game and show their appreciation for your support this season.

Everyone has a part to play in making tomorrow a success – let’s all work together to get the result we want, on and off the field!

  • Use the allocated turnstile and seat as printed on your match ticket

  • Respect fellow supporters, stewards and staff – we’re all in this together!
