Teenagers sentenced for burglary and criminal damage at Salisbury FC’s Stadium

Three young people have been sentenced after breaking into Raymond McEnhill stadium – the home of Salisbury Football Club – in Old Sarum on 6th April 2023.

The teenagers, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to burglary and criminal damage at Salisbury Youth Court on 30th April.

They were given referral orders of between four and nine months and ordered to pay £200 each in compensation.

The court heard that during this incident, the clubhouse was broken into and damage was caused to many rooms, resulting in more than £2,000 in repair and cleaning bills.

Det Con Martyn Powell said: “The result from court will cause the three involved to work with key workers so that they can be steered away from further criminality. 

“The compensation will provide at least some compensation towards the damage caused.”
