A few months ago, one of the pitches under the tunnel suffered mindless vandalism to a bent crossbar which left the pitch unusable. When the repaired crossbar was reinstated it lasted just two weeks before it was re-bent. No doubt the perpetrators thought this was hilarious as they've now returned to damage both sets of posts. 
As a consequence of three bent crossbars in three months we are now struggling to accommodate all our weekend fixtures - to put it bluntly, this ongoing, deliberate, criminal damage is preventing the club from providing sport for children in our community.
Not wishing to give 'fame' or attention to this trespassing and damage we have previously not published this activity. However, considering the escalation of the vandalism, we would like our members to know we are reviewing CCTV footage and respectfully request if anyone has any information on the identity of those responsible to please contact the police or the club. Thank you.
