HEARTLESS vandals have struck at Beith Juniors' ground - leaving them with a massive repair bill just before the start of the season.

The club have made a plea on Facebook to try and find those responsible after a tractor was destroyed, the changing rooms were broken in to and nails were thrown on to the pitch. 

This comes after damage to other junior football grounds in North Ayrshire this summer with both Kilwinning Rangers and Largs Thistle being left with substantial damage and bills to repair vandalism. 

The club said: "A great start to the Season thanks to the brainless group of youths who can't seem to leave Bellsdale alone this Summer....

"A bill of over £500 to repair our tractor on top of setting off fire extinguishers after breaking into our new Changing Rooms, attempting to set fires within the ground, throwing 4" Nails onto the pitch, breaking glass inside Bellsdale and at the Astro Pavillion.

"If you know who this is, please let us know (we will find out). If your kids hang around here, have a word - volunteers spend an endless amount of hours giving the community a ground and club to be proud of and s**t like this just makes life so much harder and demoralises everyone!"
