Supporters will not be allowed back to Selhurst

EAGLES supporters who caused harm to innocent Charlton Athletic fans in September 2007 have been asking if they can come back into Selhurst Park, co-chairman Steve Parish has revealed.

Having been issued banning orders, some of those Eagles fans have attempted to overturn them in court, and for those who have been successful in doing so, they can request to watch Palace again in SE25.

But Parish is adamant he will not be allowing that to happen.

"The fans that got put away for the violence against Charlton in 2007, some are starting to have their banning orders overturned," he said.

"And they are now asking if they can come back into the ground.

"Now, Simon Jordan banned these people for life and I think that was the right decision at the time and I think as a club we've got to honour that.

"Frankly, I agree with it - these people committed terrible acts of violence to innocent people on the train.

"It's a legal banning order and if they can get that overturned in court, it's then down to us whether we admit them back in.

"I think that we've got a duty of care to all the supporters that come and want to peacefully enjoy their football."

And on the back of the social media abuse received from a "minority" of fans, he says the more they do it, the more likely it is he'll catch them.

"The people who cause football violence and delight in ruining the name of the club – keep tweeting me, because I will find out who you are," said Parish.

"I will do that, and if I can, I will get you banned.

"I won't come off Twitter and I won't block any of them. I know chairmen get it and the obvious action is to block it, but I think it's just a minority."
