Football club targeted for second time by thieves
7:30am Monday 30th December 2013 in News
A FOOTBALL club has been left devastated after thieves targeted their tea hut for a second time in a matter of months.
Crooks broke into Harwich and Parkeston Football Club’s ground at the Royal Oak last week.
They stole 17 brand new Mitre Calcio black and yellow match balls.
Chairman of the club Tony Armstrong has described it as ‘another nail in the coffin’ for the club.
In October thieves targeted the tea hut stealing £300 of stock including burgers and hotdogs causing hundreds of pounds of damage.
Mr Armstrong said the club would be making sure nothing was left in the hut from now on.
“It is another nail in the coffin. We are struggling to keep the club going,” he said.
