Liverpool and Spion Kop 1906 group reach agreement on flag rules

Posted by

It seems the club has seen sense after all, thankfully.

Officials from Liverpool have agreed that registration and accreditation for flags and banners on the Kop is unnecessary, despite previous threats, confirms the Echo.

The Spion Kop 1906 group, who had been banned from waving a large number of their flags against West Ham during our last Anfield fixture, tweeted the news following a meeting with the club.

There was a large backlash from fans when the news broke that flag accreditation was a possibility, and we reckon this is the likely reason for the club withdrawing the proposal.

The suggestion was originally mooted following a disagreement between a disabled fan and 20-year-old Jonathan Poulter – who was blocking the fan’s view of the pitch. He now faces a trial in November having been charged with using ‘threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour to cause harassment, alarm or distress’.

Liverpool FC Disabled Supporters Association made an official complaint and an internal investigation was launched, but thankfully the club has seen sense and we should see our wonderful flags before kick off on Sunday versus Norwich.
