I'm sure FGR will be looking for a super away turnout at Stevenage immediately following the team's first away win at Coventry.
Lets try and fill a second coach of supporters.

Wish I had read your post before booking seat in section C.
However I suspect that there will be a flexible policy of letting all FGR supporters sit together when we get there. [I hope so, anyway]

I have just spoken to Stevenage and been told that because game will not be a sell out there will be no restrictions of where supporters sit.
Therefore on day lets find best viewing spot and congregate around that area.

Having been to Stevenage a few times in our non league days we were always given the entire seated stand behind the goal,so should have no problem where you sit,bit of a bogey ground for us,do not think we have ever got a decent result there.

If someone is in your seat, you don't really care and are happy to sit elsewhere? Fine.

But if you politely make them aware that you would like your seat back and they refuse to move? That's plain ignorant.

As for saying it doesn't matter where you sit? Maybe not to them, but they should have the courtesy to give up their seat to the person who has paid for it.

There were a lot of seats to choose from. We had at least 16 seats each. If we’d sat in someone else’s seats and they insisted we move it would have been one of the most extraordinary things I’ve ever seen :lol:

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
