As supporters may be aware, there was an incident during the last home match with Chesterfield which resulted in VSC Secretary Martin O'Hara being ejected from the stadium.

The trust is delighted to be able to inform supporters that the club have apologised to Martin for this action, having conducted an investigation and found that he did nothing to warrant this outcome.  Both the trust and Martin as an individual would like to thank the club for reaching the correct decision.

Furthermore, this incident has opened the way for a very productive debate with the club around stewarding standards and the important role stewards play in both supporter safety and customer service.  Many stewards in the stadium deliver their matchday role to a very high standard, and this is regularly recognised and commented upon by supporters, but what this incident has highlighted is that there is always room for improvement.  The Football Supporters Federation will be assisting the club to become a leader in positive matchday stewarding and help ensure supporters are treated both fairly and consistently through this approach.  

The trust recognises this as a very positive step for the benefit of all supporters attending matches at the Keepmoat Stadium.
