Following the successful sessions held at Wroughton BC on the 24th, at Salisbury BC on the 28th and Spencer Melksham on the 29th there still several of the regular Wiltshire players who have not ordered a new shirt. For information the cut is slightly more snug fitting than the previous shirts.
The cost of the new shirts is £10.00 if you swap in an “old” shirt – maximum of 2 swaps per person; additional shirts for 2018 cost £25.00 – thereafter who knows
As the final order needs to be sent in by the middle of next week 7th February to hit the manufacturing / delivery date in time for the outdoor season, please would all still to order send their requirements to Neil Gillespie at email@example.com.
Please note that Marcia is co-ordinating the orders for Amy Rose players.
We will not be ordering a large stock in reserve as in the past this has cost the county money with write-offs; In future the time from order to delivery is a minimum of 6 weeks and that’s without any Brexit issues!!
