A facility that was opened to serve the local community in Cardenden in honour of Celtic legend Johnny Thomson has been vandalised by mindless morons only four months after captain Scott Brown opened the facility.
Johnny Thomson is one of Celtic’s most famous sons who lost his life playing for the club in 1931. A freak accident saw the player lose his life at the age of only 22 in a match at Ibrox stadium.
Johnny is still a local hero and that’s why the 3G pitch in honour of him was backed by Fife Council and The Fife Leisure Trust.
The sick vandals targeted the image of Thomson before pouring the rest on the pitch.

FreeGellyBhoy’s tweet above shows the damage done by mindless idiots.
Here was Scott Brown, Jim Leishman and Tom Boyd opening the centre in honour of Johnny back in November of last year.

It’s absolutely ridiculous that people feel the need to damage public property which is there to serve the community, regardless of the player it is named after.
