  1. “no further incidents”…apart from the 3 further pitch invasions during the second half from the same area where the first incident happened AND where the police and stewards were standing.

    As one of the stewards who were asked to come up from South London to look after the K’s fans I can confirm that the “organisation” behind the game was a shambles. Their usual stewards were in charge of the home end and did nothing before (and indeed after) the incident to control the crowd and were either in fear of the home support or just completely incompetent to control a big game. We were stationed around the K’s fans and could only watch in astonishment – and indeed it was only the 5 of us that stopped the pitch invading home fans from reaching the away section after the final whistle. I’m not sure that the Duku incident changed the result (BWFC looked the better side), but the club had to be severely punished to ensure that they try and stop the ever increasing problems associated with the nutters from the local estates who turn up for big games. A complete failure from the FA … what a surprise.

    The truth is that there is very little the FA can do to prevent this sort of thing.

    They are not the law and the law and Police have far better things to do than baby-sit drunken cretins.

    Fining the club or demoting them won’t work and would probably just make the problem worse due to the lack of resources avialable to clubs at these levels.

    Isolated hooliganism problems with Boreham Wood definitely stretched back to the late 1980s – a couple of neanderthals desperately trying to stir things up with opposition fans at a game I was at, with police and stewards watching on motionless. It seems nothing changes. We were told back then that there was a running reputation. They only get away with it because their club’s profile is so low – the same incident happening at Millwall or West Ham would have the FA and the media going to town over it.

    Pretty Much everytime they play St Albans there is some form of thuggery, I remember police being called for a county cup game, I remember them pitch invading and walking the enitire lenth of the pitch whilst the game was on and I remember a double decker bus of thugs turning up for the Herts Senior Cup Final as well

    I’m sure the game at Worksop in 2006 is still fresh in some peoples memories as well
