Police appeal for information after vandals smash through junior football club cabins in Connah’s Quay

Police are appealing for information after vandals smashed into cabins used by a junior football team in Connah’s Quay.

Two cabins at Connah’s Quay Tigers Dock Road football ground were targeted sometime between Sunday April 9 and Wednesday April 12.

Club volunteers who have been working tirelessly to get the ground and pitch to safe standard for the junior teams to play on were left frustrated by the ‘mindless’ attack on their facilities .

Officials from the club estimate the latest bout of vandalism to hit the Dock Road ground could cost well over £2000 to repair after holes were smashed in the roof and walls of the cabins.

 

The area has been blighted by a wave of vandalism with reports of quad bikers riding on the pitch and discarded needles and drug paraphernalia left lying around.

Damage has left the pitch and surrounding site unsuitable to play on at times with the club often having to use other teams facilities and hire pitches to play their matches.

The Tigers launched a crowdfunding drive last month to raise £10,000 for security fencing in an effort to beat the yobs.

It’s hoped CCTV cameras will have captured footage of the vandals in action, anyone with information is asked to call the police on 101 quoting reference RC17051341
