Fortunately in this instance there was not something or more to the point someone in it.

Wickford is a small town and it saddens me to think that kids / people think that there is any benefit to the community in wilful destruction of property.

Wickford Town FC is a registered charity and as such I hope that the people who did this are proud that they have had caused a financial loss to a charity that is providing football in the community in the main for children.

I hope they realise that the amount of damage caused can take months of fund raising to replace.
