Visiting team’s coach smashed into and a driver’s bag stolen during League One match

Wycombe Wanderers’ team coach was broken into and a driver’s bag was stolen during a League One match at Rochdale.

The bus, which was hired by Wycombe, was vandalised in the car park at Spotland Stadium just after the 3pm kick off.

Photos show the door completely smashed and part of the front window shattered by a brick, as you can see in the social media posts below…

A replacement coach was arranged to take them back to Buckinghamshire around 200 miles away.

The only thing that was in the driver’s bag was a Tachograph which measures how far is travelled according to Rochdale chief executive David Bottomley.

He said, as quoted by Manchester Evening News: “It was broken into in our car park. A driver’s bag was stolen. All it had in it was his Tachograph. They smashed the window of the door and caused significant damage to the windscreen.

“Mindless vandalism has cost a lot of money and all it has done is annoy people.

“We have apologised to Wycombe. It’s never happened before. It’s terrible.”

A spokesman for the Chairboys stated: “An unfortunate incident happened during the game. Rochdale as a club were extremely helpful. We are very grateful to Rochdale for helping arrange a replacement coach.”


After finding out on Wycombe’s team coach being broken into and vandalised, fans took to slam the culprit but also work out how much it was going to cost to sort out – see those tweets on the next page.
