Lordswood FC ground repairs following Vandalism

Donation protected
We reported on our social media formats on Tuesday 2nd March that our ground had been vandalised by some mindless moron(s) who have no respect for other people's property.

As a club we work hard to ensure we have a facility that people can use to play football. Whether that be youth football or senior football - the aim is to provide footballing facilities to all, and to be a hub in the local community.

Unfortunately an attack on our ground isn't just an attack on us as a football club, it's an attack on the large number of children and adults that use our facilities to play football.

Players, managers, and committee members from all sections have all worked tirelessly to ensure we have a facility to be proud of. We give our time freely and voluntarily to do this and to see it trashed with such blatant disregard makes us angry and it also makes us sad.

It makes us angry to see all our hard work seemingly done for nothing, and it makes us sad to think that there are a minority in our community that think this kind of behaviour is acceptable.

Damage has been caused to a goal on our second pitch. Wooden fencing around the pitch has been deliberately smashed, as have covers and advertising boards that well-meaning sponsors have paid to install and promote their business. Our dugouts which were newly painted and refurbished just last summer by our first team management have been attacked with force leaving significant denting and damage.

The outcry in response to our social media posts have been heartening to see that our footballing friends and also people in the community do not condone this type of behaviour. There have been several offers from local individuals and companies to provide manpower to help with reparations.

At a time when we have not kicked a football for over 4 months now, and subsequently have had no means of income during that time, this damage and the costs associated to rectify it is most unwelcome and is something we could have done without. This will hit our youth teams first and foremost as they are due to be able to start playing football again at the end of March, which does not give us a great amount of time to put things right.

With that in mind we are therefore appealing to our local community and footballing friends to assist if you can in donating anything that you can afford in order for us to be able to put right what has been damaged.

We thank you in advance for any support that you are able to give.
