Jersey update:

in addition to meeting notes, I’ve spoke to our supplier regarding the jerseys. They should be a few weeks. There’s been a little extra on the lead time, I’m assuming this is due to volume of work with clubs getting kitted for the new year. I’ll keep you updated when I’ve a firmer date. Thanks for your patience.
