Trio sentenced over break in at Salisbury FC stadium

THREE youths have been sentenced after breaking into Raymond McEnhill stadium – home of Salisbury Football Club.

The trio, who cannot be named for legal reasons, forced their way into the Old Sarum ground on April 6 last year.

They pleaded guilty to burglary and criminal damage at Salisbury Youth Court on April 30.

They were given referral orders of between four and nine months and ordered to pay £200 each in compensation.

The court heard that during the incident, the clubhouse was broken into and damage was caused to many rooms, resulting in more than £2,000 in repair and cleaning bills.

Det Con Martyn Powell said: “The result from court will cause the three involved to work with key workers so that they can be steered away from further criminality.

“The compensation will provide at least some compensation towards the damage caused.”

The sentences came in the days before the club secured promotion after a successful season.
