Caernarfon Town FC

Caernarfon Town FC has condemned vandals who broke into the club’s ground twice in a week.

The Cymru Premier club says its facing ”great cost” after its boardroom, club shop and hospitality suite was damaged at The Oval on Monday night (24th February). The canteen was also targeted last week.

The Cofis have also thanked fans who turned up at the ground on Tuesday night to clean up some of the damage.

The break-ins follow a recent increase in anti-social behaviour in the town.

Paul Evans, interim chairman at Caernarfon Town, said: ”We are disappointed and very frustrated to have been targeted in this way. Last week’s incident, which was limited to the canteen, was bad enough, but this latest piece of vandalism is of a much greater scale and will set the club back financially.”

The club has urged anyone with information about the break ins to contact PC Dylan Wyn Hughes at Caernarfon police station on 101.
