Vandals cause £3,000 damage at cricket club
10:00am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
Vandals have caused thousands of pounds of damage to covers at Clacton Cricket Club in Vista Road.
The covers, which are used to stop damage to the wicket, were targets by yobs on Friday.
Club chairman Pierre Oxley said he has been left outraged by the attack, which is the second since the season started in April.
“The covers cost £5,000 and we need to have them because of the league’s regulations," he said.
“These idiots are threatening the viability of the club."
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call PC Phil Wiltshire, at Clacton CID, on 101.
