Umps to stand out from crowd

UMPIRES running up and down the fields at Gympie Hockey will stand out this weekend thanks to generous sponsorship from local business Haymans Electrical.

Gympie Hockey publicity officer Desli Adams said Peter Schutt from Haymans Electrical had kindly stepped forward with sponsorship to provide new umpiring shirts.

The shirts are bright orange and players will have little difficulty separating umpires from the foes on the field.

“Peter’s generosity and continued support of Gympie Hockey is greatly appreciated,” Adams said.

 Keep an eye on Thursday’s edition of The Gympie Times for this weekend’s hockey draw.
