Sturt clash/training jumper?
YES! Thanks to Dean1 for alerting me to the eBay sale!



I do have a feeling it's not a proper PI or anything, based on this photo of inside the guernsey, the bottom hem..

I think I might know what it is. Does nextgen or silk feature on it perhaps?
The picture I put up of Brant Chambers was 2009-10, I BELIEVE..
My guernsey is 2008 version, no white around the monogram...
...Meaning I have both the 2008 home and away guernseys! :D

I've got the same one, minus the sleeves though. Would be much better without all the sponsors as far as the eye can see.
Is it exactly the same, same sponsors and no white around the monogram?

Unfortunately at the time Sturt needed all the money they could get, so I understand!

Heres my whale, on the right. the Caroline Springs Lakers.
Why? Lived in Caroline Springs for 5 years before moving back to NZ.
I'd settle for a reasonably priced retail version - the club did offer me a Brian Lake-signed one for a coupla hundy. But sheesh I wanna wear it around and get it grubby.

Is that a jumper or a billboard?

I've heard Brian Lake's sits on his golf cart 24/7 protecting the club from theives, choking out any suspects, might be hard to steal one.

In all seriousness, from what I've seen of the club around CS Square, they sell kits at the start of each season at their booth outside of Coles, no need to sign up as a playing member, either.

Yeah, it is just a shame that clubs need to resort to this in order to pay the bills... especially in a second tier competition.

That said though... and like I said before, bloody good looking guernsey if you look past the sponsors.
Yep, and it's definitely a great guernsey.

I'm just glad that the amount of sponsors on our guernsey has now decreased and so have most of the white backgrounds..
