A spokesperson for Sheringham FC said they were "disappointed". 

"We have seen an increase in damage caused to the sporting facility in recent weeks including an increase in litter, broken glass and anti social behaviour.

"The only losers in all of this are the hard working volunteers and of course the kids," the spokesperson added.

The club runs two adult teams and nine youth teams from ages 4 to 18.
