Would be nice although they had to be pushed into having the 50th anniversary kit in 2009/10. Some senior staff decided they would change the colour of the shorts. When I found that out I asked Kilby to intervene which he did. I still think they were fantastic kits.

2nd week in a row that overall deaths in the UK are actually down on the same week last year.
Not a great surprise though is it, stands to reason lots of the people who would have died from 'natural' causes in the last 2 weeks already went via covid assistance in March/April/May.
