Three men threatened a member of staff at Barton Rovers FC in Barton-Le-Clay on Sunday (3 December) evening. They ordered him to open the till and hand over cash. It is the second time the club has been robbed this year.

The offenders, described as one white man and two black men, were all wearing masks. One was wearing black tracksuit bottoms with a white line running up each leg, and a distinctive fur hooded coat.

I’m appealing for anyone who may have witnessed three men acting suspiciously outside of the club in Luton Road to get in touch.

We’re following a number of lines of enquiry and we’re also working with the club to help them prevent any further such incidents.
