Arbroath FC ‘disappointed’ after vandals break into ground Arbroath FC

Arbroath Football Club has appealed for help after its ground was vandalised.

The Angus club’s Gayfield home was broken into over the weekend and vandals spray-painted the pitch.

Arbroath officials believe the incident happened around 10pm on Saturday evening and have asked people to contact the police if they have any information.

The club tweeted: “Last night we were celebrating how amazing our fans were as we sold out our 500th brick on supporters wall.

“Sadly this morning we awake to the news that Gayfield has been broken into and that it has been vandalised and tagged with spray paint all over the ground and pitch.”

The club said the neighbouring Tutties Neuk pub also had its windows spray-painted.

“We have been working so hard to make our iconic stadium the very best we can offer home and away supporters and then this happens,” the Arbroath tweet continued.

“We believe the vandalism happened at around 10pm, if you have any CCTV of the local area we would love if you could take the time to review it.”
