I sit in block C. The shortest route to pitchside directs me to the front of block E, from where I often wander round the north west corner to the foot of block J or K, to meet friends and watch the warm up.

But on Tuesday night I was stopped from going round the north west corner by a steward, who said it wasn't allowed.
Is this correct? If so, why?
There's no possibility of interaction with away fans, and I've never seen any significant congestion in that area - you see more logjams at the foot of the north stand, where railings project into the walkway.

I was also intrigued as to why there were two stewards stood in each of the aisles of the north stand before the game.
All they seemed to be doing was obstructing people getting to their seats.

Just an FYI - individual issues like this may best be addressed by directly e-mailing Steve Rowland, our club SLO at: Email: slo@blackpoolfc.co.uk

Hope this helps.

I had this too. I sit in nw corner and always take my kids down to watch the shots at the goal b4 kick off, steward wasnt for letting me back up to my seat afterwards. That's literally 10 yards from where I am sat

Its not an individual issue if others are also being stopped. If people don't talk about others may not talk about it and it looks like a one off issue.
There was quite a few being stopped and had to show their tickets. This was before the match started. But interestingly free to go in NW and North without being challenged at half time.

I noticed a lot more female stewards in the north on Tuesday and wtf I was actually searched before I went in. Bloody ridiculous really being searched at my age haha. Even the female steward said to me she felt uncomfortable searching people.

Not uncomfortable enough to stop doing it though? Just following orders….

Rumour has it that some are coming round from other parts of the ground to get involved in the North atmosphere, leaving it overcrowded, hence the check on tickets.

I was to. I’m a 45 guy, the only place I go where i ‘need’ searching to check I’m ok to come in is a football match. Pathetic, and what’s more pathetic is we’ve allowed it to be normalised
Im 49 and was asked to take my hat off in case I had anything underneath it!!!!

There was a porky steward with a large beard giving it the biggun and being sarky and disrespectful to fans queuing up outside the East side of the South pre match. I suggested he get himself back to charm school and moderate his attitude. Most are absolutely fine and just decent people doing a job but chumps like this need putting back in line.
