The club wrote on Twitter: “Very sad to report. some time over the last couple weeks our seats in the stand at Frampton have been vandalised

“Seats have been broken, also looks as though there has been a fire

“As a club we have worked so hard to get the stand & seats,to see this damage is sickening.”

They said on their donation page: “In recent days, our Windmill Lane stadium was badly damaged by vandals. Seats have been destroyed, and there was an attempt to burn down the stand which we have spent so much time and effort on building. For a small community club with a tiny budget, this is a horrible blow, but it is one we will recover from.

“After posting the story on Twitter, we have had several very kind offers of financial support. This is incredibly generous, and just goes to show how great 99% of the football family is. However, due to the current situation with COVID-19, we did not think it was appropriate to ask people for money in these times.

“Instead, we would like to take this act of senseless vandalism and turn it into a positive. For the next two weeks we will be taking donations, however 100% of this money will be donated to the NHS to help our medical heroes with the current challenge they face.

“If you still wish to help out the club, the best possible way to do so will be to come down and join us for a pint and cheer on the boys at a game when the season eventually restarts!”
