A North Yorkshire football team reckon they are the unluckiest side in Britain.

Some of the Wills Bar FC team say they will quit the side after the latest run of bad luck, reports York Press.

It started when they turned up for a home game against Dunnington to find their pitch had been double-booked.

No other local pitch was available, so they had to drive 20 miles to Dunnington to play the 'home' York Sunday Afternoon League clash away.

Team manager Steve Baxter, 20, saidd: "We went out and played the game and got totally stuffed 8-0 by Dunnington, so the mood wasn't all that great when we got back to the changing rooms.

"But when we did get back we found that our wallets and mobile phones had all been stolen.

"I don't know what you would call it. I suppose you could say it's extreme bad luck, because I don't think anyone was particularly targeting our things."

The previous week, four players had their cars broken into while they had been playing football on pitches behind York's Knavesmire.

Mr Baxter added: "It's a sad state of affairs, but we have a few players who have told me they are not going to play any more because of this, because at some point it stops being enjoyable when this kind of thing happens."
