CLUB STATEMENT: Break in at the Weaver Stadium

By Steve Sharman:

Nantwich Town are sad to report that the club was broken into overnight, with thousands of pounds worth of equipment taken from the groundsman’s store.

Thieves broke into the ground and took a ride on our John Deere mower and one of our Haytor mowers plus other pieces of kit. Both pieces of equipment stolen were less than two years old. The Haytor mower was bought for the club by our supporters.

This is the second break in in two years where the club has been targeted and Chairman Tony Davison said: “This is devasting news for the club. The equipment stolen was nearly brand new. Some of it had been donated by supporters which makes the theft even more upsetting.

“Running a club at this level is difficult enough at any time but events like this can put the whole future of the club at risk. We will have to launch an emergency fund raising initiative to replace the equipment and make sure we can look after the pitch to make sure it is ready for next season.”
