A JustGiving page has been launched to pay for security measures at Seaford FC following an arson attack.

The club, which plays in the Southern Combination League One, had a dugout set on fire by the use of an accelerate last month (November, 22).

They are now looking to try and raise £2,000.

Organiser Roderick Gentry said:

“We have a long-standing problem with anti-social behaviour at The Crouch.

“Gangs of youths congregate in the football club dugouts to drink and smoke and repeatedly cause criminal damage.

“The gangs also cause concern to local residents and other users of the ground.

“The football club is run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of the youth and senior sides within Seaford and the surrounding community and damage by vandals has to be repaired using funds that should be used to improve the facilities for all.”

Local businesses have pledged £600 to the appeal, while over £500 has been raised on the page so far.
