Yobs leave broken glass on town's new football ground

Thursday, 12th May 2011.

Haverhill's new football stadium has begun to attract anti-social behaviour from young eople getting in at night and leaving broken glass on the main pitch.

Haverhill Rovers have appealed to Haverhill police to help deal with a soituation which has impacted on home games.

Young people have been getting into the New Croft ground, particularly on Friday nights, and loeft behind a problem of broken glass which has to be cleared from the pitch before a match can start on a Saturday afternoon.

Sgt Sarah Bartley of Haverhill Safer Neighbourhood Team said they had had issues of anti-social behaviour along the railway walk, but some of it now seemed to have spread through the Chalkstone estate to the new football development.

"Haverhill Rovers manager Peter Betts has brought the matter to our attention," she said, "anmd we will be working with the club to try to prevent it."

She said police were unaware of any similar issues having arisen at the club's previous ground at Hamlet Croft in Hamlet Road, and put it down to the new ground being in a differemnt area of the town.
