Swift community action has saved the Kurri Kurri Bulldogs headquarters from yet another theft after vandals attempted to break-in twice in eight days.
On Sunday, a Bulldogs fan drove past just before midday and saw a suspicious car parked at the sportsground.
The fan went to see what was going on and the two people fled the scene in the car.
Bulldogs secretary Jeff Polglase said the fence had been cut and an extension cord inside one of the buildings had been damaged and stretched, but nothing had been taken.
It came after one of the brick storage sheds was damaged on New Years Eve.
Mr Polglase said after a string of break-ins last year, the club decided to add extra security to the roller door, which he believed prevented the person from getting into the building on December 31.
In September, someone jimmied under one of the shed’s roller doors and stole a set of two-way radio headphones valued at about $3500.
Two whipper snippers and cords and a service pack for a ride-on mower were also stolen from the ground in break-ins last year.
Mr Polglase said he would report the incidents to police on Monday.
Anyone who has information about the break-ins should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
