The pitch which is used by many people of the community including children was discovered to have been damaged with fencing that has been cut through and 'beyond repair'.
Chairman of Trowbridge Football Club, Ralph Mccaldon said in a statement on the club's website: "ALL of the perimeter fencing has been cut and damaged, most of it beyond repair."
According to the statement, the cost of replacing the damage will come to around £20,000.

"Over the last three years the club has tried desperately to 'do the right thing' and attempted to work with the community - most of this has been very well received, apart from a VERY SMALL number of people who obviously believe they are the centre of the known universe," Ralph Mccaldon added.
Trowbridge Football Club is open to players from 5 years old and above and meet at Woodmarsh just off Bradley Road, Trowbridge.
The club's 1st team's next home game against Southbrook Football Club will be a fundraiser to raise money to replace the damage to the fences and to make it a safer place for children to play in.
The game will be on Saturday, 12, January 2012 with kick off at 2pm. Gates for the match will open at 1:15pm where there will be a youth exhibition game beginning at 1:45pm.
There will be a £2 entrance fee and hot food and drink will be available.
Ralph Mccaldon said: "We are hoping that the people of Trowbridge will come and support their community football club and send a clear signal out to those responsible for the damage that their behaviour is just not acceptable in our society."
The police have been contacted regarding the incident.
