DENBIGH Town FC are appealing for witnesses after an attempted break-in at their ground.

The club revealed that thugs tried to enter the clubhouse at the Central Park site either on Thursday, April 9 or Friday 10, with the damage discovered by treasurer Iwan Jones on Saturday.

Their efforts to break-in has left the door and lock bent significantly, leaving officials unable to enter the site due to the damage.

Police have been informed of the incident, which has left Town chairman Shon Powell “disgusted”.

He said: “This is extremely disappointing especially when we put so much effort into improving this club for the community.

“Nothing was taken, and it appears that no one has got into the building but even if they had there is absolutely nothing to steal.

“We do not keep any money, goods or anything of any value at the ground whatsoever.

“Despite this being a relatively poor attempt and a complete waste of everyone's time the cost of repair will amount to hundreds of pounds.”

The culprits are believed to have kicked the double-glazed doors with considerable force in their attempts to enter the facility, and they also climbed on to the roof of the changing rooms and removed the roofing tiles in a further attempt to burgle the premises.

Anyone with any information regarding the attempted break-in is urged to contact North Wales Police and ask for investigating officer PC 2962 Liam Parkes currently based at Denbigh.
