Football team terrorised by vandals could be forced to close before celebrating its 70th year

A beloved community club could be forced to close before celebrating its 70th birthday, if it can’t end a campaign of terror by vandals.

The volunteers who run Bedlington Terriers FC say they may have to shut the club because of the astronomical cost of repairs

They say their clubhouse has suffered three attempt break-ins, leaving doors and locks seriously damaged.

Intruders have also “wantonly smashed” glass in the club’s floodlights, rendering them “not fit for purpose”, volunteers who run the Northern League Division Two club, from the grounds at Doctor Pitt Welfare Park, claim,

Chairman Ronan Liddane said: “We’ve been hit by vandals over the last few months repeatedly breaking into the park, destroying fences, damaging locks, they’ve broken into our little hospitality box, smashed a television, fired pellet guns at our floodlights.

“The police really can’t do much because we don’t have any CCTV - which we can’t afford because we’ve got to pay to repair the damage.
