CALLING ALL JUNIOR CLUB KEEPERS ...

2 months ago By tim walters

As promised last week ...

“This has been put on sale due to player demand at the Club, which is great.” Kit Manager

All BEHC goalkeepers - regardless of size, age group or ability - can now buy their own keeper's jersey, or smock' online, as O'NEILLS have just released a junior version with the "C-R-Y" charity logo on the front (see above). If you go to the web-shop to order, however, make sure you choose the correct one.

Also, please don't forget the previous hints re. sizing, i.e. you generally need a size at least three times bigger than your normal clothing to allow for the protective gear underneath. That would mean that an "Age 13" sized goalkeeper would probably need an adult size M, so if in doubt, check the online measurements or ask one of the junior coaching staff.

Unfortunately the price of the smock is higher than that of the outfield playing shirt, but this is neither down to greed or smaller demand, but purely a result of VAT. Because of the necessary "upsizing" mentioned above, the garment does not generally fall into "children's clothing", which is exempt from VAT, so it has to retail for a higher price - sorry!
