Sidelined: Quirindi Grasshoppers guernseys, shorts, socks believed stolen

THE PRESIDENT of the Quirindi Rugby League Club has been left scratching his head over the disappearance of the entire Grasshoppers senior side player's kit, which is believed to have been stolen.

The 25 red, white and green guernseys along with 35 pairs of shorts and 35 pairs of socks, ordered for the 2013 season, was delivered to a Quirindi address, signed for and has not been seen since. 

President Luke Austen said he contacted Tamworth police yesterday after the delivery was not received. 

"It could be an honest mistake, but why would someone sign for the delivery?" Mr Austen said.

"The guernseys are of no use to anyone but our club. It's a real blow."

Secretary Kelly Tickle said the kit was valued at over $2,500 and the club could not afford to replace it.

"We're a small club. Without these we can't play."

"It takes 12 weeks to reorder the kit."

Mrs Tickle said the senior side were due to play at Forster at the end of February but that clash was now in doubt if the missing kit could not be found.

She said that anyone with information as to the whereabouts could contact the club via it's Facebook page or contact Tamworth police.

"We're just hoping someone will know something and contact us. No one has to know, we just want them back."
