Sergeant Mavis Evans, of South Flintshire Policing Team, posted an appeal for information on its Facebook page and said it had been a “sad loss” that the items had been taken.

She said: “The football club do a lot for the community working hard to keep the local children off the street and they do a lot of fundraising in order to buy new stock, so any help to recover the stolen items would be greatly appreciated”

“The football items belonged to Saltney Town FC and it’s a sad loss that the youth kit has been stolen.

“There are many local children who play for Saltney Town and they’re very upset about what’s happened.”
