We have been reminded by Vandyke that we only hire the pitch until 10pm on training nights and that if we continue to linger after that time, delaying putting kit away and knocking hockey balls around then they will charge the club for an extra half-hour.
So please can all players take responsibility for putting equipment away and leaving the playing surface promptly after games and training.
While most teams give the responsibility to individual players to look after facemasks, first aid kits, practice balls etc. please be advised it is each team's collective responsibility to make sure that they look after and do not lose club kit.
Should any kit be lost then the teams that lose the club's kit will be asked to pay for replacement items and may be asked for a further monetary deposit to support the potential purchase of new items should kit continue to be mislaid.
Thank you for your co-operation in both matters.
