FSF NW meet in Manchester this Thurs – all welcome

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The FSF’s North West and North Wales Division will meet this Thursday 21st January with guest speaker Inspector Sesnan who has responsibility for football policing within Greater Manchester Police (GMP). FSF member or not we’d be delighted to see you there.

If you’d like to join the FSF it’s entirely free and we’ll even chuck in one copy of our magazine, The Football Supporter (tfs), for free. Click this link to join the FSF.

As it’s away fans who usually have more issues with the police this might even interest members from beyond the North West so please do forward this on to anyone who you think might be interested.

Given the issues that the FSF and football fans have had with the GMP in the past this is the ideal opportunity for you to put your questions and opinions to GMP. How would you like to see things done differently? Senior police officers from Lancashire and Merseyside are also expected to be in attendance.

The meeting will be held at the Waldorf Pub 12 Gore Street, Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 3AQ with a 7pm kick-off. Click here for directions to the Waldorf which is five minutes walk from Piccadilly rail station – car parking is available close by.

If you have any queries please email divisional secretary
