Camden Tigers frustrated after home ground vandalised

Camden Tigers members have been left shaking their heads after their home ground was vandalised over the weekend.

More than 1000 Tigers soccer players are now without a field after offenders dug up holes across Ron Dine Memorial Reserve in Camden South.

Tigers president Michael Gowing said the damage was discovered by a club member on Sunday morning.

The incident has been reported to police and Camden Council.

"It is frustrating because we spend all year maintaining the field and then things like this happen," Mr Gowing said.

"The most disappointing aspect was it wasn't a random incident.

"Someone has gone out of their way to do this."

Mr Gowing said Tigers members spent the past two days working to fill the holes.

However, he said he was unsure if the grounds would be available to use this weekend.

"We will consider whether we hold games or not over the next few days," he said.

Mr Gowing said the club was working to upgrade the security system at Ron Dine Memorial Reserve.

"The upgrade will include infrared and high definition cameras, which will be brought in soon and cover more area of the grounds," he said.

A Camden Council spokeswoman said council was "incredibly disappointed" with the vandalism that occurred at Ron Dine Memorial Reserve.

"We urge anyone with information to contact Camden police," she said.

It is the second major vandalism act to occur at a Macarthur sports field.

Several clubs were left without a field after offenders used a vehicle to do doughnuts across the Bargo Sportsground in late March.

Bargo Bunnies Junior Rugby League Club president Peter Campbell told the Advertiser at the time that it was "pointless vandalism".

"It is disappointing. Lots of money has been spent on this ground and it's looking the best it has in years."

Camden Police has been contacted for comment.
