Young St Albans City fan donates to club after burglary

A young St Albans City FC fan was so upset by the club’s recent break-in that she decided to sell some of her toys to help them out.
Isobel Burwood, seven, set up a stall outside her house last Saturday to fundraise on behalf of the Saints, raising £11.25 from her efforts.
As reported in last week’s Herts Advertiser, burglars broke into St Albans City’s headquarters at Clarence Park in the early hours of June 16, stealing £200 but causing £5,000 worth of damage.
They smashed open tills, ripped doors off their hinges, and threw a fruit machine down an external stairwell, ripping holes in the concrete steps.
Isobel first came to the club with her parents for the game against Truro as a guest of friends Sinead and Steve Jack in March. Sadly the Saints lost but Isobel became a devoted fan and is looking forward to the new season.

Collecting the money from Isobel on behalf of the club, co-owner Lawrence Levy said: “Everyone at the club is thrilled that, on her own initiative, Isobel raised money for St Albans City FC following the recent break-in. It is testament to the great affection in which the club is held by supporters of every age.
“We are delighted by the donation and look forward to welcoming her and her friends next season.”
