When you are appointed as a Ground Official, its not just wearing the jacket. The Ground Official is the person who is in charge of their own clubs' spectators. A knowledge of the rules would help, but in reminding your own friends and spectators that their behaviour is not acceptable is often enough to cool a flashpoint.
Members are reminded that, at times, some offenses should be reported to the appropriate statutory body. The Management Committee and the Protests and Disputes Committee can only give suspensions from football related activities. Being assaulted or vilified is a crime which we recommend you report to the relevant statutory body.
