THE HUNT for thieves who snatched a scoreboard from the Wakefield Wildcats’ stadium is still on.

Staff at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium, on Doncaster Road, were left bewildered when they arrived at work last Thursday morning to find the club’s 20 foot long electronic scoreboard had been taken overnight.

Police say the theft occurred between 8pm last Wednesday and 8am the following morning.

A spokeswoman for West Yorkshire Police said: “The scoreboard has not been recovered so inquiries are ongoing.

“We are still appealing for information and would like to speak with anybody who may have witnessed any suspicious activity.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police on 0845 6060606, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
