One of the posts is so damaged that it is beyond any kind of repair. Whoever did this had to have put in a great deal of effort as they are very solid. Judging by the recently used beer cans and bottles that we found nearby, some socialising must of been taking place on the recreational field around the dates of 27th January -1st February 2021.
This act isn't mindless it appears to be deliberate and pre- meditated. People always have a reason for their actions, even if the reason isn't a particularly good one. However, we have no idea why the football club has been singled out in this way.
We have fully dismantled the damaged post and will shortly arrange for its disposal. The total cost of replacing the post will be £1525.44. As you can see, a substantial amount.
The police have been informed, and they, like us, would be grateful for any information that will help us to find the perpetrators. If you can help, contact either our club secretary or club chairman.
