Thieves have once again struck at Wisbech Town Football Club, the third time in the space of a month.

Chairman Paul Brenchley discovered the damage to the cabin and club shop at the Fenmen’s Elgoods Fenland Stadium yesterday (Tuesday, April 14), where a couple of trophies were also stolen.

The club had previously been broken into when thieves had twice targeted a container on the rear pitch, but it is uncertain whether all incidents took place at the same time or how many people were involved.

Speaking on a Facebook discussion forum, Mr Brenchley said: “Another break-in at club. That is three times in a month, the container on back pitch twice and now the club shop.

“We have lost a couple of old silver cups (impossible to know value) and basically made a mess. Bit frustrating really.”

Police have been contacted for a comment.
