AN EMERGENCY meeting is taking place this afternoon (Friday) to discuss the safety arrangements for Monday’s play-off decider between Mansfield Town and York City following CEO Carolyn Still’s arrest for threatening behaviour.
As reported yesterday Miss Still was involved in an altercation with police during Wednesday nights play-off first leg. She was arrested and cautioned for using threatening words and behaviour after police ejected a non-playing Stags first team player during the second half of the 1-1 draw.
Miss Still is in charge of safety management at the club’s One Call stadium but the county council has called a meeting to see if alternative arrangements are required.
Rob Fisher, Nottinghamshire County Council’s group manager for emergency management and registration, said: “An emergency meeting is taking place on Friday 4th May involving the safety advisory group covering Mansfield Town Football Club’s One Call Stadium (formerly known as Field Mill ground) following an incident at the Mansfield Town v York City match.
“The meeting is made up of representatives of Nottinghamshire County and Mansfield District Councils, the emergency services, Mansfield Town Football Club, supporters’ groups and the Sports Ground Safety Authority.
“The club’s chief executive Carolyn Still is expected to be in attendance and the group will be assessing the implications of the incident for safety management at the One Call Stadium.”
