It was frank mead who made the decision I went down and asked him at half time and he said that a few fans had complained about the noise last week. When I questioned him he became quite aggressive. What chance have we got of attracting young fans with people like that in charge


That's so disappointing. What a joke.

Furious at the ineptitude and short-sightedness.

All bringing drums for QOS then?

Shameful stuff from the ' fans ' that complained about the drum. Even more shameful that a Dumbarton official wanted the drum confiscated. We should be encouraging young lads to come to games with our ever ageing fan base. It seems the club are doing their best to distance themselves even further from the local community.

Attractive pricing for 2 Cup matches results in some local youngsters attending (and seeing The Sons win), so let's take away their drum. Can't be having any sort of noise or positive atmosphere at home games. :shutup

Absolutely frightening logic in action.

Highly noticeable that old Frankie boy never showed his face pitchside, the entire 2nd half.

Bawbag.

It’s nothing to do with the club. The stewards took it away. There was actually club officials complaining as it was taken away. Totally pathetic though.

The club surely has a sway on what happens inside their own ground...

Complete and utter Joke. If you don’t like the noise then move it’s not exactly like we are full.

Loads of negativity around the club and the last week or two they were going well with results and sensible pricing then they go and royally screw their self.

Someone wants to have a work with the Stewards as well. I pull in to the stadium today to be asked by a steward if I’m here for the game. I was totally dumbfounded

I walked up to the turnstiles with the boys today, showed towards the wee window to purchase a parent and child ticket as paying at the gate last week " didn't work " according to the steward.  Fair enough, get my ticket and rejoin the que.  Head into the right hand turnstile with my ticket to be told I have to go in the other gate. I mean it's only a wee thing, but these things frustrate people. Get a wee sign up. It's not hard. I feel for the trust because the people the club employ to make a fans experience better " doesn't work " .

Aye, we got that as well. Naw, I thought I'd just buy a 50/50 and then go for a walk into Morrisons...They also ID'd my brother, who is at school and therefore doesn't have a student ID, but not me...I'm 4 year older than him.

In the end I flashed my ID and said it was his, and both of us were allowed in. Stewards are weird.

Club at another level again.

i arrived at 145 and turnstiles we’re open but operator said not till 2pm that they were having a fag first . Went to office and enquired with security officer who implied he was surprised at this .

girl went on radio to say I was complaining and turnstiles should be open . I indicated I wasn’t complaining but was about too!!!.

i then asks why they were closed but I was ignored . They then didn’t know the prices to charge .i had to tell them along with others.

add that to drumgate saga. 

Think I will email the club if only to gauge their response

Assuming that is the case, those 'fans' who complained need to have a serious think about whether or not football is for them. I found the drum a wee bit annoying last week, but fair play to the guys with it. They got right behind the team, and it did create a bit of atmosphere. They are our future, and we need more folk their age. If that comes at the expense of a few grouchy older guys then so be it. St Mirren can be cringey at times, but they do have a strong young support - we should try and build up something similar of our own.

Whether it was Frank or someone higher up from the club who made the decision, they need to reevaluate it. If I complained about fans' signing because it was too loud would I have them silenced? I'd love to be able to clamp the folk who jump on the backs of players after every single thing that isn't perfect.

For everyday decisions made, there is no-one higher up than the Chief Executive. The clue is in the two words of his title :thumsup2

Good grief. I forgot he was the Chief Exec, I was thinking he was still just the stadium manager, or whatever it was he did last season.

I witnessed your annoyance today and whilst I enjoy listening to random drumming at the fitba' about as much as trying to cut my own head off with a rusty blunt chisel, in principle, you're correct. The young boys weren't causing trouble and they seem pretty good humoured. I thought I saw the stewards then trying to get them to sit down which did seem heavy handed but probably some health and safety rule applies.

I've had issues with the parent & child tickets/ turnstiles too. Buy a ticket from the window one week but not the next, parents in one gate, kids another. If there's a difficult way to make something easy, we ll find it

Surely if there's an easy way to make something difficult? ;)
