City hockey strips stolen
THE Grafton Hockey Association has every reason to be shirty after four club playing strips were stolen from Grafton Shoppingworld last Saturday.
A number of volunteers had set up an information stall in the middle of the centre near the escalators on Saturday morning to kick off a week-long recruitment drive for new men's and junior players.
The strips of the five main clubs, the Barbarians, the Avros, the Royals, the Bears and the Sailors were all displayed on the information board.
According to David Oseland, organiser of minkie and junior boys hockey, the stall was left unattended during the afternoon, the time he presumed the shirts had been stolen.
"They're $50 shirts so some kids are going to miss out because they can't play in that team that doesn't have enough shirts," he said.
Mr Oseland hoped those responsible for the theft would have the courage to return them ? to 56 Breimba Street, Grafton.
