HEYWOOD have issued a defiant “we will carry on as normal message” after a serious break-in at Crimble resulted in more than £2,000 of damage – even though little cash was stolen.
The wanton damage was caused before the police had time to get to the ground, but steps have been taken to make sure that the Club stays in full operational mode in preparation for an important weekend.
Heywood host Greenmount, weather permitting, tomorrow in a Greater Manchester Premier League Division One title showdown (12.30), and a Cocktail Evening starting at 7pm will help celebrate a successful promotion campaign back to the Premier League.
Chairman John Rhodes epitomised the spirit within the Club when he said: “We won’t be beaten by these people who cause us so much grief. And the fact that so little cash was taken shows that it was a pointless exercise by them anyway!
“It’s distressing that this has happened but we have got over things like this before and we will do so again.
“I myself would like to thank all the many people who have helped get the Club back to normal so that we can look forward to a special weekend despite this setback.”
