THE Lautoka Hockey Association has taken a strict stand against clubs that do not wear proper uniforms for its weekly tournaments.

On Saturday, the tournament was called off because only two clubs were in uniforms.

Association executive Ernest Coffin said the offending clubs had been warned about the uniform policy.

Coffin said the clubs that do not adhere to the regulations would be dropped from their tournaments.

"This is the third week and players are coming without proper uniforms," he said.

"Some do not even wear shin pads which is compulsory in the sport. The tournaments will continue even if we have only have a couple of clubs.

"The good news is that Naidrodro from Ba will be fielding their women's team in the competition."

Mates and Tokelau were the two clubs that turned up in proper uniforms yesterday.
