Robins suffer second break-in in a month

2nd December, 2019

Selby Town have revealed that their ground has been broken into for the second time in under a month, resulting in extensive damage to a seating area.

The Toolstation NCEL Division One side, who are currently celebrating their centenary year, were already reeling from having a number of tools and other tools stolen in a burglary at the Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium three weeks ago.

A donations page has been set up as the Robins look to purchase security equipment to help prevent something similar happening again.

A statement released on Monday afternoon said: "We’re extremely frustrated to report that the club has once again been broken into, and this time extensive damaging has been caused to a seating area within the ground.

"As a non-profit, community football club every pound we raise goes directly into supporting the community and providing a venue for people to meet and enjoy affordable football.

"It’s therefore very frustrating to have this continue to happen, more so due to the fact that it is likely to be someone or some people from within the community that is doing it.

"We are now investing in security equipment and intend to prosecute any trespassers to the full extent of the law, as every pound spent repairing damage is a pound taken away from the community.

"We have set up a crowd funding to help support the costs of the security equipment and the repairs that are needed, any support would be most welcome no matter how big or small."
