Vandals at Oval

By Morrie Buckner

Vandals tried to burn down the grandstands at Middle Park soccer stadium on Friday night. Several rows of seats were charred. The vandals also chopped down both sets of goal posts. These had to be replaced before yesterday’s Hakoah-Lions match. Anti-soccer slogans were daubed on walls and terraces in letters 18 inches high. These included ‘Down with soccer’. ‘Go home wogs’. South Melbourne police have questioned two youths.
