Plea for help after vandal attack: Volunteers from a city football club have appealed for help after vandals struck.
As reported by the Evening Express on Friday, officials at Kincorth AFC were left shocked after intruders damaged their pitch at Kincorth Field.
Vandals got onto the land and covered it in tyre tracks and burnt-out debris.
Some of the damage has been cleaned up but a scorch mark remains almost a week on.
Now the club’s chairman, Kris Harris, is urging anyone with the expertise to help restore the pitch to its former glory to get in touch.
Mr Harris said: “We need some help please. As you know the pitch was vandalised last week and there is a scorch mark on the edge of the box.
“Our co-manager Andrew Ewan is really not happy about it and we need to get someone professional to have a look.
“We would be grateful if you can point us in the right direction.
“What we’re hoping to do is cut this scorch mark out and replace it with a part from behind the goals, but again this is something we need advice on.”
The club is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year and it is one of the most successful teams in the history of the Aberdeen Amateur Football Association.
Mr Harris added: “The culprits of this damage have little awareness of the wider impact this has on the community.”
