Colne FC hit by thieves


9:35am 16th December 2014

Money raised for charity taken by heartless theives

It's just one of the things taken during a break-in at Colne Football Club last week.

Doors were smashed in and TVs taken from the club house on Wednesday night

First team manager Steve Cunningham said:

"I'm just gutted for the people who turn up on a volunteer basis. Peopl don't realise what work goes into running a football club with volunteers and it is all that extra aggro it's caused, the cost becomes immaterial because it's about the extra time everyone has to put in".

It's the heartache that the guys have to go through. In their own daytime jobs they have to get time off to secure it and then we have to pay for it".

CCTV has now been installed to deter future break-ins - anyone with information is asked to contact police.
