WEYMOUTH will be unaffected by kit supply issues experienced by many of the biggest clubs in England, director Mark Palmer has revealed.

Last week, reports surfaced surrounding the 92 Football League clubs, only 44 of which had both home and away kits on sale at that time.

Weymouth have for the 2022/23 season switched suppliers from Umbro to Irish manufacturer O’Neills, meaning the Terras are expected to be unaffected by supply chain issues.

Covid-related problems in Asian factories are behind many of the delays in kit supply.

However, Weymouth unveiled their new home strip, took orders and sold shirts at Saturday’s 1-0 friendly win over Dorchester.

Speaking to Echosport, Palmer expects the Terras’ stock of shirts to be untouched by the saga, with the new away shirt scheduled to launch next week.

He said: “I’m really pleased to say that we’re not facing the issues that a lot of clubs are facing this year.

“That really backs our decision for going to a (different) manufacturer because we’re not having any of the issues from Asia, for example, because they’re actually manufactured in Northern Ireland.”

Shining further light on the Terras’ kit plans this season, Palmer revealed there are currently no plans for a third jersey, as seen in the previous campaign.

He said: “There’s no definite plan for a third kit at moment.

“The third kit only came about last year because of the FA Cup clash on the kit with Yeovil.

“We would look at a third kit if there were similar situations, i.e. a cup run, but there is obviously a home and away kit.

“The away kit is another exciting launch, in good order. It’s an exciting new design and I’m sure the fans will welcome it.

“The away kit, we’re looking at the week of the eighth of August, well ahead of Chelmsford, the first away game, on the 20th."

Meanwhile, the Terras have issued a clarification on ticket sales with some fans attempting to pay using cash on the gate.

A Terras spokesperson said: “You can buy a ticket from the ticket office on the day using cash or card, and then go to the turnstiles to be scanned through.

“The scanning of the tickets is so much faster than the cash taking process, so we can accommodate those that buy their tickets in advance, season tickets and those buying a ticket from the ticket office as they walk past to the turnstiles in the same place.

“This season, we are not reducing the ticket price for buying in advance or online, but you can buy online and show on your phone up until you walk through the turnstile.

“There may be a couple of specific games that are segregated and where the police have asked us to only sell tickets in advance and not on the day. Then, you would need to buy a ticket online or from the office before the day of the game.

“During Covid we moved the cash and card elements into one building.

“We converted a broken turnstile next to the old club shop into the ticket office, where the money and card machines are in a controlled, dry, secure environment with no more notes blowing out of the turnstiles.”

Elsewhere, Terras Travel Club bingo returns at the Bob Lucas Stadium on Friday.

Doors open at 6.30pm for eyes down at 7.30pm. The bar will be open and there is also a raffle.
