Vandalism at Bishopswood

By Christine Atkinson

We have again experienced some mindless vandalism by persons unknown at the club pitches.

Sometime after 21:00 Monday 8th, and in the early hours of Tuesday morning, some persons in a lovely turquoise Nissan drove up the same route as the golf caddys last year, got through the woods, drove onto pitches and around them creating lots of damage. They then drove through and smashed the goals. Raced around the site to the entrance gate and back round into the woods then as they tried to get back into our site luckily managed to get stuck in the trees, where they torched it..

We are all obviously very upset by this and the committee have talked to police and local press to publicise this awful vandalism. We have set up a fundraising page to try and cover some of the costs so if you can help by donating and/or sharing this post your help would be greatly appreciated by 200+ local footballing youngsters, their volunteer coaches and the committee.
