REDDITCH United are counting the cost after vandals broke into the clubhouse and trashed it.

The bar in the main stand at  The Valley Stadium was smashed up, with the extensive damage discovered this morning.

This is the third time the club has been broken into in a matter of months, despite efforts to increase security at the ground.

Chairman Chris Swan said: "This is the third time in two months we've been broken into and it just gets you down.

"Whoever has broken in has smashed the place up and for what? They might have got £10 out of the pool table.

"We've done everything we can to try and stop this but it keeps happening.

"They make a few quid but it costs us betweeen £700 and £1,000 to clear up."
