Rob­bers don’t have a com­mu­nity Hart

The Non-League Football Paper - - THE WEEK IN WORDS -

HART­LEY Wint­ney are count­ing the cost of an at­tempted rob­bery and break-in at their Green Lane home on Wed­nes­day night.

Im­prov­ing the in­fra­struc­ture has been an on­go­ing com­mu­nity project for The Row and has proved in­te­gral in their back-to-back pro­mo­tions to the Evo-Stik South­ern Pre­mier South Divi­sion.

But dam­age to the out­build­ing and pitch, driven across by means of a get­away, has set back the ef­forts of the club’s hard-work­ing vol­un­teers.

The club, who has footage of the in­ci­dent, tweeted: “Sad to re­port this morn­ing that our club was the tar­get of a rob­bery last night. Dam­age is struc­tural and ex­ten­sive and they got away with noth­ing.

“Emo­tions range from ab­so­lutely mad as hell to to­tal heart­break for all the good and hard­work­ing vol­un­teers who sup­port us and give so much of their time.

“This doesn’t just af­fect the foot­ball at the club but the com­mu­nity we sup­port. The lowlife be­hind this will be caught.”
