“The items stolen during this burglary are mostly useless to anyone else and the club are devastated after all they have been through over the last 18 months,” DSC Sanders said.

“The junior club have only returned to matches last weekend, after being unable to play during the pandemic and the club is solely run by volunteers, most of whom are parents of the under 14’s team who has been personally affected.

“The stolen items were purchased by the club for the upcoming season, and we would really like to locate them and return them to the club and the children.”
