Response from PGMOLJohn Newsham
Following on from our Chairman’s letter to PGMOL, we have received the following response:
Your letter was discussed by our management team at the October meeting. I can now confirm that our Directive will be amended to reflect your suggestion.
It will therefore read:
‘In this circumstance player and spectator safety should be considered by the Safety Officer and if the police are present, with the senior police officer’
On behalf of PGMOL, thank you for raising this matter. I am sure you will feel that we have responded positively.
Very best wishes
Dave Allison (Referee Manager – PGMOL)
