Stewards, medical staff and emergency response units visit Priestfield for a safety and security meeting on Martyn's Law.

The safety and security team at Priestfield recently ran a training evening on the new Martyn's Law legislation. 

Head of Safety, Gary Newman, and deputy John Harvey, led the seminar which was attended by stewards, medical staff and relevant emergency response teams.

A presentation was given which contained hypothetical scenarios which all groups were asked how to deal with such issues.

The legislation will be brought into place as a result of the attack at the Manchester Arena in May 2017 where 22 people sadly died.


The club carries out such meetings on a regular basis to ensure the safety of the supporters are at the forefront of everybody's minds on matchdays, and the correct steps are always taken to improve the overall matchday experience.
