    Angry Showgrounds Break-In

    On Monday night last there was a break-at at the Showgrounds.There was a LOT of damage done offices broken into and items taken also the kit room was broken as well and kit taken.This now means that Sligo Rovers will have to spend a lot of money that was meant to do other things repairing damages and replacing items and kit that were taken.If anyone hears or sees anything can they please contact myself(0876172295) or the club on 0719171212 or if anyone can help repair the damage it would be a massive help to the club.

    Thats a disgrace this isn't the first time anything like this has happened either, it happened during the 2008 season. That money could've gone towards signing players, paying current players wages and even improving the ground, but now it has to be used for something else thanks to some stupid, most likely drunken, yobs . It looks like the club will have to turn to fundraisers to help repair the damage, but considering whats happened, the public shouldn't let this news fall on deaf ears and pitch whatever they can.

    I can't understand the mentality of the scumbags that would do something like this, wasn't there a tractor mower burnt out a couple of years ago in a similar break-in aswell? Disgrace!
    The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

    my brother paid for gear for us (u20/A team) recently, couple of grand or so, he asked that we support the charity 'Aware' instead of putting his name on them, and asked that we have a flag day in town to raise money for the charity to give something back for the sponsorship from him, so the Aware logo is on the stuff. if anyone happens to see anything anywhere. we spent the day in town the saturday before christmas collecting. big let down now its all been robbed tbh

    Scumbags. The best of luck with recovering this stuff. One positive is that it sounds as though a lot of this stuff is pretty recognisable. Why oh why do these people have to cause damage as well (not that stealing's ok but you can see a financial benefit to it - vandalism is just sick and pointless).
    Keep on keepin' on.

    The gear isn't going to show up.... I'd imagine it was just a mindless job. They might have simply "done it for the craic", with hope of finding a couple of hundred quid or something.

    What a sickening act.
    To steal gear that was donated in the name of charity
    and then cause damage to a communities facilities, especially when so many people have given up their spare time to make the Showgrounds look as well as it does.

    Scousers are on a whole different level when it comes to robbing though, its like a 6th sense. Sure he could rob it back if he picks up the scent.
