AN AYRSHIRE football club have made a desperate plea for information after their home ground was allegedly broken into.

Whoever entered has also vandalised the park, in what the club has condemned as a completely “unacceptable” act.

The committee at Lugar Boswell Thistle have been left rocked by the mindless act.

It appears the ‘break in’ at Rosebank Park took place during the night of Saturday November 26 - after Lugar played away from home against Port Glasgow.

The club are now appealing on social media for anyone with information on this incident to come forward, while they also expressed their utter discontent for whomever found this acceptable.

A committee statement read: “People of Lugar. Some people have got into the park last night and vandalised the park.

“Bert [the club’s groundsman] spends his life at the park making it one of the best pitches in junior football and for people to go in and just randomly destroy for no reason is unacceptable.

“If anyone saw anything last night or sees anyone at the park please let us know.”

And they have the backing of fellow football teams and locals to the club who also condemned the vandals.

Muirkirk Juniors commented: “Just disgusting and disrespectful to the people who put all the hard work into the club. They should hang their heads in shame.”

Mark Mckenzie, the treasurer of Second Division Forth Wanderers, added: “Shocking and disgusting behaviour. These people don’t understand what this place means to Bert and the small band of committee members.

“Fantastic playing surface. Hope they are found or do the right thing and come clean.”

Others have simply added that there was “just no need” and that this act was “shocking.

One local even offered his assistance for any repairs.
