Club back in business after break-in

Oxford Mail: North Leigh FC steward Wayne Reynolds back in the bar North Leigh FC steward Wayne Reynolds back in the bar

A West Oxfordshire community has pulled together to help its football club after it was ransacked by raiders.

The clubhouse at North Leigh FC was left awash with beer last month after the thieves left the pumps running.

They also smashed windows and stole televisions, alcohol and food, leaving the club facing a £7,000 repair bill.

Bar steward Wayne Reynolds said: “We have been really lucky, because we have had a lot of donated help, including tidying things up and fitting windows and doors.

“People also offered their services to secure and alarm the building.”

The clubhouse reopened last weekend. The club now only needs to raise about £1,000 to complete repairs.

Mr Reynolds added: “People that would not normally come to the football club have helped out, because it is part of their village.”
