Players need all the kit on the kit list. However, if you want to buy it over a couple of months that is fine. It makes a big difference in how the boys look at fixtures and at training. Any kit which is currently out of stock will have an approximate deliver time of 3 weeks. As soon as it comes in, we will distribute it via development centre sessions.
