Wakefield Trinity Wildcats electronic scoreboard stolen

The Wakefield Trinity Wildcats electronic scoreboard has been stolen from the pitch, the club has confirmed.

West Yorkshire Police said they were alerted to the theft at about 0900 GMT on Thursday after the super league club reported it missing.

A member of staff arrived at the ground to find an "empty hole in the western terrace where the score board sat".

The police said the rugby league club's scoreboard was taken overnight between 2000 and 0800 GMT.

Wildcat defeat

Wakefield captain Glenn Morrison said: "They probably weren't happy with the result that was up there after the weekend, so they tried to get it down.

"But yeah, it's pretty disappointing that the club's trying to do everything right to get it up and running and get it better and for someone to do that, that's pretty slack."

Wakefield Wildcats were defeated 6-32 by Salford on Saturday 27 February.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the police.
