PLAYERS with Henley Town FC had personal possessions stolen when thieves raided the changing rooms at an away match.
The incident happened at the Red Kites’ Oxford Senior Cup game against Oxford University Press on Saturday.
The stolen items included an iPod, £100 in cash and a pair of trainers belonging to goalkeeper Steve Fairchild as well as a wallet belonging to a player from the home team.
The theft was discovered after the match when the players returned to the changing rooms, which weren’t locked.
Henley Town chairman Kim Chapman said: "You feel sorry for the players who have lost their stuff, although you can’t be held responsible when there’s a sign saying ‘do not leave your valuables in the changing room’.
“If somebody can be so low as to pinch other people’s stuff — even trainers — then there’s not a lot going for them. They’re scumbags, to put it bluntly.”
To add insult to injury, the visitors lost the game 4-1.
