Visitors to today (Thursday) will not have found the usual club page, but a message telling them the site has been targeted by high tech criminals.

The message reads: “Due to issues beyond our control (the site has been hacked) this website will be taken offline.

“A new site will be available in the near future.”

“Apologies for any inconvenience caused.”
