New kit for the 2018 season

We will be playing in coloured shirts this season (with white trousers and pads). The new kit is being subsidized by a grant from the WML, so will be available at less than cost price. The design is currently being finalized and once we have full details we will be sending out an email.

In the meantime, please don’t purchase a new white match shirt!
