Shropshire Police have today issued a warning to both Shrewsbury and Walsall supporters ahead of Saturday’s end of season fixture.
Everyone is aware that a defeat will see the Saddlers relegated to League 2 for the first time in thirteen years but Shropshire Police have told supporters not to let their emotions to get the better of them.
Superintendent Mo Lansdale said
“We know the majority of fans will enjoy the game in good natured high spirits. Many families will be going along to enjoy the last match of the season.“
“There will be officers on duty around the stadium to help keep disruption to a minimum and ensure those going along can do so safely.”
“Our absolute priority is making sure those going to the match can do so safely and there is minimum disruption to our local communities,”
“I hope people feel reassured about the steps we’ve taken to make this a good day out for everyone”
They also confirmed anyone with banning orders or pending banning orders who attempt to go to the match will be arrested.
The Saddlers have sold full allocation of 1,614 tickets and this afternoon Shrewsbury sales were above 8,000.
We at Vital Walsall would encourage all supporters to abide by the law and not to be involved in any type of disorder.
