Football club hit by arson attack
One of Birmingham's most famous non-league football clubs is trying to assess the damage caused during an arson attack.

The stand, changing rooms and social club at Moor Green FC's home in Hall Green were all been badly hit by fire and water damage on Tuesday night.

The club says home fixtures in the near future are in doubt.

It will be contacting the Nationwide League and the Birmingham County Football Association on Thursday.

Club director, Nigel Collins, said: "The games against Stafford Rangers and Wolves are unlikely to go ahead as planned, however we should be in a position to face Lancaster City at the Moorlands on 12 February."
