ICT stewarding

Recommended Posts

Hi did everyone else  get searched at Caley game going into ground  ? Its first time we have been searched en masse at a game ? When I asked steward why everyone ie my 2 grandsons aged 6 and 7 along with myself and wife were getting full body searches  I was told it was because fans had been bringing in pyrotechnics.  My wife expects her handbag to be searched at every ground as this is norm but body searches of 6 and 7 year old was a bit over the top . Especially when game started and ICT fans were  letting off flares . I just wondered if it was just early fans or all fans . I usually find stewards at inverness very good and this was so out of character for them ?

It’s not uncommon for pyro to prompt searches. I remember one of the first Thistle games I went to was at McDiarmid Park around Bonfire Night and almost everyone in the away support was searched.

As I walked past the away turnstiles at the Dunfermline game I say their fans being frisked.  Clearly not foolproof. Wasn't there a flare set off by them early doors?  Clearly doesn't work at Ibrox either.

Yep, i got searched also (have to say the steward was very pleasant) but all seemed pointless as ICT fans were letting off flares.

Obviously they weren't searched very well - or was it only away fans that were searched??

Yes we got searched by a very nice young girl, who I then asked to take a photo of us,all very pleasant, but obviously no checks on the home fans hence the flairs...

All the rage in Inverness at the moment. Watch out for mullet haircuts making the next sensation.
