Missing Jerseys There is an ongoing problem in the Club as regards jerseys going missing after matches. The problem lies mainly with the sponsored ones with the Mazda and Citroen Logos. It is now the intention of the club to get back as many of these jerseys as possible in order to get sets ready for next year. At a recent Executive meeting it has been decided that once a team has been issued a set of jerseys (or 2) at the start of the year they are then responsible for keeping that set. If at any stage a jersey goes missing it will be up to the team captain to collect a levy from the players to cover the cost of the jersey. This practice of removing jerseys from the club has to cease as it is an unnecessary expense for the treasurer and the club. So once again if you have either of the jerseys for whatever reason you can give them back to the Equipment Officer. (087/2039726)
