Rothwell Corinthians Appeal

29 April 2014 09:52

It's hard enough balancing a full time job and running a non-league club, but when your club is subjected to a break in and goods are stolen, it makes it even harder.

Following the theft of the club's television, club officials from Rothwell Corinthians of the United Counties League, were met with damage and destruction at the club with thieves breaking into the club house and stripping pipework from the showers, toilets and roof of the club house. What's more frustrating is the copper is worth a few pounds, but has left damage worth several thousands of pounds.

The damage has been worsened by water pouring into the changing rooms and club house causing further damage.

The club, run for local players, has been hit hard as, like all non-league clubs, the club is purely run on many unpaid hours from people dedicated and passionate about local football and the grass roots game.

A donations page has been set up where people from all over the footballing world have pledged to help the club in their attempts to get everything back up and running as quickly as possible.

If you can help in any form, or would like to donate to the cause via the club's dedicated fundraising Just Giving page,, then please get in touch by e-mailing Shaun Sparrow (
