THE CHAIRMAN of Exmouth Amateurs is saddened after a burst water pipe at the club's headquarters caused the ceiling to collapse leading to thousands of pounds worth of damage.
A pipe burst at the clubhouse, in Warren View, last Friday, January 8, causing internal ceilings to cave in.
Ross England, chairman of the club whose first team play in the Devon & Exeter football league, said the damage could total more than �2000.
He added: "There are a lot of things soddened and damaged. We are trying to clean it all up but cannot do that much until the insurers have had a look.

"We did have an incident like this last year but nothing to this extent. It was right down near the changing room area. It always seems to happen at extreme ends of the building."
Ross said the incident was testament to the bad wintery weather the country has experienced in the last few weeks.
"We have never had cold weather like this with the temperatures dropping.
