A FOOTBALL club are suffering from the washing-day blues after their kit went missing!
Woodbridge Town Football Club officials are baffled by the disappearance of the kit which was taken to Launderclean in Woodbridge Road, Ipswich at the end of last season.

Woodbridge Town chairman John Beecroft said: “The reserves used the kit for the last game of last season in early May, and it was taken in to be washed soon after.
“When we went to collect the kit the laundrette said it had already been picked up. We have a monthly account with them so our kit is never 'tagged' at the laundrette.”

He said the laundrette had another red kit awaiting collection, which Woodbridge have since traced belongs to Suffolk County Council FC, who thought their kit had been lost.
Beecroft said: “Our theory was that our kit had been picked up by another side and the mistake would not become apparent until they used the kit once the new season started, but all the leagues are now under way and no-one has come forward.”
He said the Nike kit, which bears the Woodpeckers' crest, is 18 months old and would cost between �500 and �600 to replace. The club are currently using a blue and yellow change strip.
Beecroft added: “If we don't get any response to our appeal then it is possible we will have to contact the police to report the matter.”
A spokeswoman for Launderclean said: “We are as mystified about what has happened to the kit as Woodbridge Town. In 30 years we have never had this happen before.”
