A SCHOOL football team are so fed up with dodging dog mess as well as opposition defenders they are spelling out their message for all to see.

Sudbury Upper School’s Year Nine boys team want no more foul play on their pitches, after penalty boxes were peppered with piles from lazy dog walkers on the school field.

Paul Stokes, head of PE, said: “I have picked up five lumps before a match and even when you clear it up it is not all gone.”

Sudbury and Great Cornard community wardens Bradley Smith and Andy Nunny, along with Mary Burton, a volunteer with Sudbury’s Dog Watch scheme, have backed the school’s fight against fouling, as two new bins have been bought for the school fields.

“If people use the bins that are provided then there won’t be a problem,” said Mr Nunny.
