The chairman of Stansted Hall and Elsenham Cricket Club says he has been left frustrated after burglars broke into the pavilion last week and stole the club’s tea urn and kettle.
The incident occurred at the club’s Elsenham Place ground on Friday night (October 9) as thieves gained entry to the kitchen and the home dressing room by jimmying pad locks on two doors and damaging a window.
It is the third time the club have been targeted in the last three years and in total, the bill for repairs and replacing the stolen items is likely to be around £200.
Chairman David Brown said: “It’s disappointing because we are a community club with a big junior and girls section. We also do a lot of work with disability groups and to be knocked back like this is very frustrating.
“We hardly keep anything at the ground these days because of the other break-ins we have had in the past so what more can you do? The ground is situated on private land but there is a public footpath running through it. It’s not the sort of thing you want to happen but we’ll have to move on.”
