Stranraer Football Club Disabled Supporters Policy

Stranraer FC have a Club policy in relation to accommodating, as far as is reasonably possible, the needs of disabled supporters in recognition of the Club's obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 to tackle the issue of physical features that act as a barrier to disabled people who want to access the Stadium.

In this respect, please note the following:

Stranraer FC has ensured adequate facilities for disabled persons with wheelchair space to the front of the main stand solely for the use of disabled persons and their carers. This area is flat and is covered. There is a designated entrance and exit for disabled persons with a wide gate to give easy access to disabled persons in their wheelchairs. This gate is permanently manned throughout the game by designated stewards. There are disabled toilets close by this area. The Club employs stewards briefed in assisting disabled persons and their carers. The Club grant free admission to any wheelchair user disabled persons and their accompanying carer.

The disabled person's area is reserved for use by parties who are disabled and is primarily utilised by disabled supporters who are wheelchair users. If a disabled person who is not wheelchair user is unable to gain access to the seating area in the main stand or other suitable viewing area, the Club will consider a specific request to allow that disabled person access to the disabled enclosure provided an arrangement is made with the Stranraer FC Administration office not later than 24 hours in advance of the particular match to be viewed.

For all disabled supporters, the Club operates a policy whereby if at least 24 hours advance notice is given to the Club's Administration Office, the name of the disabled person and their companion/carer will be taken and arrangements will be made to aid access to and exit from the main stand.

Stranraer FC has designated disabled car parking spaces available for disabled spectators. These are available on a first come first served basis.

Max Currie

Position: Goalkeeper
Date of birth: 03/03/1997
Place of birth: Glasgow
Previous clubs: Motherwell
 
Max was with Motherwell as a youth, making a number of appearances for their under 20s. The young shot-stopper was given a baptism of fire in his competitive 1st team debut at Stenhousemuir, before taking all the plaudits with a man of the match performance in a Scottish Cup tie against Celtic in January 2016.

Deputised for Cameron Belford in the Betfred Cup at the start of the 2016/17 and didn't look out of place, and added to this with a handful of cup appearances in 2017/18. Learning his trade from goalkeeping coach Eric Phillips and the experienced Belford should stand Max in good stead for the future.

Joined Cumbernauld Colts on a short term loan deal in December 2017.
