Hoon behaviour at Kyabram Recreation Reserve highlights Kyabram sports facilities plightJuly 2, 2014 3:01am
Vandals have caused large scale damage to the Kyabram Recreation Reserve oval after a car drove onto the ground on Sunday morning.
Neighbours reported hearing loud noises and witnessing a white Subaru driving across the pitch creating large divots and scars across the wet and muddy ground.
Kyabram Football and Netball Club president John Bacon said the act was reckless, dangerous and stupid.
‘‘It’s stupid vandalism that affects so many people,’’ he said.
‘‘They are just ignorant kids who think it’s a lark, but it’s not and it causes a large amount of damage down the track.’’
Council staff attempted to repair parts of the ground on Sunday morning before two under-16 football matches started.
Mr Bacon said it created a dangerous situation for the players, but that the club had no other choice but to let play start due to lack of facilities.
‘‘They were running over these ruts and they probably shouldn’t have,’’ he said.
‘‘They could have rolled an ankle, but we have nowhere else to go.’’
Mr Bacon said he hoped the vandalism would highlight to Campaspe Shire how much Kyabram desperately needed more sporting facilities.
