Both supporter trusts of NCFC and ITFC have issued statements with regards to the “Old Farm Derby” in August.  The statements  from both supporter trusts  are below. F2C agrees 100% with these statements. This decision by Suffolk Police shows total disregard to both sets of fans. As stated  Suffolk Police do struggle on match days when policing high profile games. It appears that SP have not and refuse to learn from past mistakes. If this games goes ahead on the 24th Aug this has the potential to be one of the worst for travelling fans. Consultation with supporters groups is vital on these matters and both clubs and police forces need to realise this ASAP.
