Nuneaton executive: Trouble nothing to do with club

Nuneaton Town Chief Executive Ian Neale says police went to The Granby pub to organise an escort to town for Nuneaton fans, but only three people said they were interested in going to the match:

They were allowed to leave the pub to take a taxi to the ground, which is two miles away from where the arrests were made. The Boro is a family club and people who are looking for trouble are not welcome at our ground. Anyone found guilty of any offences today will be banned from the ground for life.

The club works tremendously hard on community programmes to give young people locally aspiration and opportunities in a working class town and we see ourselves very much part of making positive things happen for the town.
