    Non league club left hurt after being repeatedly targeted by vandals

    A non league club have recently revealed they have been left hurt after being repeatedly targeted by vandals breaking into their ground.

    Peckham Town posted photos, via social media, of the damage and mess made by the culprits over the last few months.

    The Kent County League Premier Division outfit said: “We are a 100% volunteer run club. We love football and changing young people’s lives. The last few months have been really difficult for everyone.

    “However, we are hurting so much with the massive increase in vandalism on our two sites.

    “Please stop.

    “It’s not okay to break into our ground, have a picnic on the main pitch and then leave your litter. We spend many hours every week maintaining the main pitch to provide a quality surface for the best amateur players in South London.

    “Please don’t do this.

    “It’s not okay to climb on fragile roofs and smash up expensive goalposts. We pay for this equipment from the subs our players pay.

    “Please don’t do this. Unsurprisingly we want goals to kick into when football restarts.

    “Please don’t dump rubble at our ground. If we have to pay for its removal, then you are reducing the funds that we have to pay for football equipment for our young players.

    “Please take your rubbish to the dump, or wait till it reopens. We don’t want it.

    “We would really prefer it if you didn’t take down the advertising boards to make skateboard ramps. You shouldn’t be there anyway, but please stop damaging our signage. These cost money too.

    “The training ground at Pynners is private, so please don’t use it without permission. We need to monitor usage to protect the pitches.

    “If you do break in, then NEVER drive your car on the pitches, as it damages them really badly. Yes, this has happened too.

    “We usually prefer to keep issues like this private, but it has become so bad that we need the communities help. We can’t be there 24/7. If you suspicious activity, then please let us know via DM, or via the phone number on Google maps.

    “Despite these setbacks, we still love the game! If you are interested in helping out when football restarts, then please do get in touch. We always need more volunteers, and will publish an article on our website shortly on this.”
