"I reckon only a flying pig could get in now !" This was the comment of Councillor Richard Leppington as he surveyed the new " boar proof" fence at Whitecroft Football Club.
The fence was put up with funding from an Active Together grant of £6360 from Gloucestershire County Council.
Sandra Giddins from Whitecroft FC told us " The wild boar were constantly getting onto the pitch , digging it up and making it impossible for the lads to play. This has meant that we have had to cancel lots of games. With the new fencing we can ensure that matches actually go ahead " Councillor Leppington added " The committee have done a great job in keeping football alive in the village. I was glad that I was able to help them out"
The new fencing seemed to bring Whitecroft luck as they powered to a 3 nil win against Puma!
