PTB would like to place on record our disgust at the reports this afternoon that the owners of the club have both received death threats.

PTB resolutely condemn any kind of threat or abuse and we would expect Greater Manchester Police to come down hard on the person(s) involved in the strongest possible manner, this type of behaviour towards another person has no place in society. All this behaviour does is derail the hard work done by honest, law abiding supporters. The club had already admitted in their statement that talks were ongoing with credible people.

As we have stated numerous times previously, we urge all supporters to be respectful at all times. Emotions may run high but making any form of threat and abuse should NEVER be tolerated.

PTB will work with the club, if required, to assist in identifying the person(s) involved.
