A Fenland football club has been left devastated after thieves stole their ride on mower.
Chatteris Town Football Club said the mower was stolen sometime last Wednesday “and police are aware but we fear it’s long gone”.
Club chairman Julian Young said: “If anybody does know of its whereabouts then please contact the police or a member of the football club.
“Unfortunately, this now means we cannot cut our pitches and the cost of getting someone in to do it is not an option long term.
“If anyone can help us out with cutting our pitches we would be eternally grateful”.
Mr Young said: “This is the latest setback this hard working club has had after previous clubhouse and changing room break-ins.
“The club has just committed to improvements to drainage in the summer and there is also some further works required to suit building regulations following our recent refurbishment, meaning any surplus cash is committed.

“It is now the time of year where pitches and surrounding grass needs cutting once per week.”
He added: “This set back is soul destroying to all the busy, hard working committee, helpers and players and we appeal for information on it’s return and/or assistance of loan/rental equipment for the future weeks.”
