“It’s soul destroying” – Binfield Football Club vandalised

Vandals struck on Saturday night

“It’s soul destroying” – Binfield Football Club vandalised

Vandals hit Binfield Football Club on Saturday night leaving tyre tracks on the pitches at Hill Farm Lane.

The Moles, who had earlier won through to the Third Round of the FA Vase following a 3-1 win at home to Redhill, discovered the damage to pitch 2 at the club when chairman Bob Bacon arrived for kids Soccer School on Sunday morning.

A post on social media from Binfield said: “Our pitch two after a night of gits racing around it. They have no idea of the cost of repair or the inconvenience this costs us.”

Mr Bacon said: “We do Soccer School on pitch one so that was fine. It was the time it took to investigate, get our groundsman down, take the photos, talk with the neighbours, check the facility, call it in to the police. I did no coaching at all today.

“It’s soul destroying.”

If you have any information about the vandalism, please contact Thames Valley Police.
