On the 22nd June at 11.00pm thieves have taken 11 rolls of pitch carpet from the ground at Station Road. We are working alongside our wonderful contractor Tim Pugh Lewis to get replacement carpet. This will delay the opening of the new pitch.
Don Amott the chairman of the football club issued the following statement:-
The news overnight of this theft is a devastating blow to the football club. All of the people who work around the club are volunteers who give up their personal time to help a local community club. We will come back from this stronger and look forward to celebrating with the local community once the project is completed.
If anyone has any information about the theft please contact Derbyshire Constabulary.
