Photos: Vandals Burn Equipment Worth Thousands At Sallynoggin FC


Upsetting photos have surfaced online after reckless vandals broke into the Sallynoggin Pearse FC clubhouse and burnt all of the football equipment.

According to reports, the equipment is valued in the thousands and was totally destroyed in the incident that happened at the clubhouse in Pearse Park on Saturday night.

A club spokesperson said via Facebook: “Last night our clubhouse was broken into they kicked a big hole through the side of the clubhouse and they have burned all our equipment.”

“Footballs, cones, bibs, ladders, hurdles- you name it along with team kits including one we only just got and had worn yesterday for the very first time.”

“We as a football club don’t have much and we have to work hard for everything we get and in one night a couple of grands worth of stuff has been destroyed on us.

“There was only a similar incident a week ago with Carriglea Monkstown. This behaviour needs to stop.”

They added: “There is no place for it football or in our community, we are the senior football club of Sallynoggin and we are appalled at being treated this way everyone at the club are absolutely devastated.”
