Men Attacked in Newcastle under Lyme, Work Commenced on Wammy Changing Rooms

Written by on 25 April 2024

Police are appealing for information after two men were attacked inside a house in Newcastle-under-Lyme.  The incident, which is being treated as isolated, was reported at 8.30 on the evening of Wednesday 17 April.

Both victims were inside an address on Mount Pleasant when two masked men forced their way inside and assaulted the victims who then managed to escape.

They were later taken to hospital for treatment and were later discharged.  Nothing was taken from inside the address.

A forensic examination of the scene has been carried out and officers are keen to speak to anyone who has any information that can help them track down the two offenders.

Local Footballers can soon enjoy a more comfortable playing experience now that building work is underway to create accessible wheelchair friendly changing rooms on a popular sports field in Knutton.

The £1.6 million development at the Wammy – part of the Knutton Village Masterplan – features an FA-approved layout including toilets, showers, lockers and a community room

The majority of the funding is coming from the Borough Council’s Town Deal allocation for a variety of approved projects in Newcastle.

Other financial contributions are from the Council’s capital programme, developers through planning agreements and a £250,000 grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation.

Gavin Appleby, chair of Newcastle Town Football Club, added: “It’s good to be a partner in this exciting new project to improve facilities for local clubs and people in the area.”
