Kit & Equipment
Club Kit

Club colours are a white shirt with navy blue trim, navy blue shorts or skort and navy blue socks. All members are required to have a club shirt as these will be needed for matches.

We are confirming arrangements for sale this season of the lub shirts, and other club clothing.

Equipment Required

Footwear should be appropriate for Astroturf, however Astroturf football trainers are not recommended due to the lack of protection they provide. 

Hockey shin pads must be worn for both training and matches and a fitted mouth guard is advised. For older players a left hand protective glove is also recommended.

Each member is advised to have their own stick, however these are available to borrow if required. If players are looking to buy their own stick, guidance on this can be found here
