Moama Cricket Club president Ian Siede said alcohol, some cash and a laptop were stolen after thieves jemmied open a roller door at the front of the canteen and a door to a storage shed.
Mr Siede said he first heard of the damage when a club member came down to roll the wickets early yesterday morning.
He said a cricket bag, which was left inside the canteen, was emptied and used to cart away the stolen goods.
The club had to organise security for the premises until police have finger-printed the scene, which was expected to happen today.
‘‘It’s a nuisance,’’ Mr Siede said.
He said the club had not had a break-in in the two years he had been president.
He said apart from the roller doors, there was not too much damage.
‘‘They were just here to pinch stuff,’’ he said.

He said the offenders forced entry through the roller door and stole some chips and soft drink between noon Sunday and yesterday.
‘‘It’s a disgrace that community facilities are being treated in this manner by, more than likely, members of the community,’’ he said.
He said police inquiries were continuing.
