It’s just not cricket for vandals in Hatfield
VANDALS have ruined a cricket pitch with either bleach or weed killer.
Two cricket wickets, at Roe Hill Hall in Hatfield, were vandalised some time between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
Hatfield Crusaders Cricket Club use the strips for their home games but will now have a limited selection to use until they are deemed playable again.
Carrie Lloyd, town clerk for Hatfield Town Council, which owns the playing fields, said: “We are having to give them a lot of tender love and care [the wickets] and we are hoping we can bring them back into use soon.”
Crusaders welfare officer Bob Connor told today’s Welwyn Hatfield Times the club was “fighting a losing battle” against vandals.
