Filthy vandals leave disgusting surprise for local football club groundsman

Kelly Williams - North Wales Livein Football

Vile vandals smeared dog muck on gates belonging to a youth football club in the second attack on the grounds in a matter of weeks.

The groundsman of Mynydd Isa Youth Football Club made the grim discovery this morning when he put his hand in the mess as he tried to gain access to the pitch.

It comes amid preparations to make the club Covid-19 safe so that football training can resume.

Last month, the Flintshire club reported a spate of antisocial incidents in the area and launched a collective fundraising drive for CCTV cameras for sites that had been targeted by lockdown yobs recently.

It was instigated after seats in their new stand were trashed and some spattered with blood among litter and broken glass that was strewn around.

Today, the club posted on its social media: "Not a great start to the morning. Some mindless individual thought it would be a good idea to smear dog fouling (sic) over our access gate for the pitch."

"You are on CCTV - the police have been informed - you will be caught."

A spokesman told North Wales Live: "One of the groundsman this morning put his hand onto the handle that the fouling was smeared on."

"We have cleaned and disinfected all gates and handles."

"We are in the process of starting football training and completing a risk assessment for COVID-19 where all entrances must be disinfected and could not believe what we found this morning.

"A few weeks back our football stand was also damaged. We don't know why this is happening."

A North Wales Police sookeswoman said: "We had a report of nuisance antisocial behaviour at the Pavillion, Bryn Y Baal Mold Argoed Social Club.

"Inquiries are ongoing."
