A CLARKSON football oval has been vandalised overnight, after a vehicle tore through the turf.

Quinns Districts Junior Football Club president Joe Murray said members wouldn’t be able to train at their home ground for a few days.

“Council (workers) have put temporary fencing around worst affected areas,” he said.

Mr Murray said there were no games planned for the next couple of weeks, but they planned to have bouncy castles at a family event there on July 8.

“We are a little bit fortunate that it’s happened before the school holidays,” he said.

“We have got a gala day next weekend so we are hoping it’s recovered enough.”

Mr Murray said he understood the chain was broken on the access gate and a white ute was involved, having seen a picture of it overturned on Facebook last night.
