A CLACKS football club have appealed with fans to park considerately at their stadium after an ambulance struggled to access the ground last night.

Sauchie Juniors hosted Blackburn United on Tuesday, April 5. The Wee County side were 3-1 winners thanks to goals from Ross Crawford and Danny Smith.

However, after the match the club took to their social media channels to announce a supporter had taken unwell and required an ambulance.

The emergency services had difficulties gaining access to the ground due to cars in the parking area and the club have asked fans to be considerate.

Posting on Facebook, the club said: “Sadly at tonight’s match we had an incident with a supporter taking not well and requiring an ambulance.

“Firstly, thank you to everyone who provided support with this situation, it is greatly appreciated. Everyone worked together to handle the situation.

“Secondly, we would like to wish the supporter an extremely speedy recovery and we hope to see them back at Beechwood when fully recovered.

“Sadly we experienced issues being able to get the ambulance up to the ground with cars parking on the entrance to the emergency access road.

“This is not acceptable and we ask that you please use common sense and park considerately when visiting Beechwood Park.

“This may sound harsh but in an emergency having clear access can make a massive difference.

“For those who don't know this is the access road on the right hand side of the car park which leads up to the big red gate.

"Please ensure this is kept clear.”

Sauchie Juniors’ next match is against Musselburgh Athletic this Saturday, April 9 in the East of Scotland Premier Division.

Following the success of a ticket incentive in last night’s game, the club have announced that up to four children can attend Saturday’s match for free alongside a paying adult.
