Iron chairman "shocked" by dressing room vandalism

Halstead Gazette: Iron chairman "shocked" by dressing room vandalism Iron chairman "shocked" by dressing room vandalism

A football club chairman has been left shocked and saddened after “wanton and needless damage” of dressing room facilities.

Braintree Town Football Club chairman Lee Harding believes he has no alternative but to contact police after damage was caused at the Amlin Stadium dressing room immediately after the Skrill Premier Division match at home to Salisbury City on Saturday.

The club has confirmed that the perpetrator, who is known to the club, is not associated with either Braintree Town or Salisbury City football clubs.

After the damage was reported to the Football Association representative at the game, the perpetrator did not apologise, but accepted liability for the damage and offered to pay for the repairs to the facilities in full.

Mr Harding said: "Over the years we have all worked hard to improve our facilities as best we can.

“We will now face a race against time to complete the costly repairs before our game next Tuesday at home to Macclesfield.

“Personally, I'm shocked by it - this is a very sad day for the game!"

" ... a very sad day for the game." I know, right? I've never, ever heard of vandalism, violence or other forms of thuggery associated with the "beautiful game". Good gracious me! What IS the world coming to. And in Braintree, yet? My flabber is ghasted -- and that, as one might imagine, is not a pretty site.

Indeed: yet ANOTHER sad day for the game.

Pshaw!

Ah /@|_|@\ - if only I could share your rosy view of the world.

I knew this was coming the moment I saw a report in the Scottish Daily Record in August 2012.

Once the rot set in amongst the genteel Lawn Bowling fraternity I feared it was only just a matter of time before the ‘beautiful game’ as you put it was also besmirched by copycat hooligan behaviour.

Were doomed I tell you. The end of the world is nigh!

Extract from SDR report 22 Aug 12

A BOWLER caused mayhem when he stripped down to his boxer shorts during a match.

Scott Noble dropped his trousers in front of 200 stunned spectators at the Edinburgh Cup Final for lawn bowls.

A spectator said: “I’ve been watching lawn bowls for over 40 years and I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“There were old women present when he decided to drop his breeks – they were mortified.

“He was walking about with his trousers down for ages.

Reminds me of poor awl Angus. Never a lucky man with the ladies, he thought maybe his luck might change when he happened upon Agnes out on the moors. She (politely) enquired, given the circumstances of their being alone, what a real scotsman wears beneath his kilt.

"I'll show ye, Agnes" he says raising his kilt.

"Och!" she exclaimed - "it's gruesome!"

"Aye, lass, and if ye touch it, it'll grew some more!"

Again, Angus walked home alone...

All I can say is that seeing how 'Spurtle' rhymes with 'Myrtle' it's darned good job her name was 'Agnes'.
