CHERRIES head coach Scott Parker admits that he calls for caution regarding the reintroduction of standing terraces at football grounds, adding: “I think the big thing is safe, safe standing.”

Six Premier League and Championship clubs have applied to take part in safe standing trials taking place next year.

Following the Taylor Report in January 1990, it was recommended that Premier League stadiums become all seaters – and this came into effect for the top two levels from the 1994-95 season.

But now there is a continuing yearn for supporters to have the opportunity to again stand, with some saying it will bring improved atmospheres across the country.

Parker weighed in on the debate, saying: “I was a Spurs fan, but I never was involved in that, I always used to sit really.

“I think the big thing is ‘safe’, safe standing. Certainly I have a vision of some standing and overcrowding and things like that.

“I’m sure it won’t be the case, but also on the flip side, there is probably an atmosphere it brings. Standing in stadiums brings something a little bit different.

“I think the key thing is as long as it’s safe and people enjoy standing and that’s what they want to do, then perfect.”
