Thieves ride off with team’s tack

THE newly-formed De Aston equestrian team has had their recent success marred by thieves.

The team’s brand new sponsored jackets and rugs were stolen, along with the team manager’s car.

The jackets and rugs had just been collected from the suppliers.

Team manager Sandra Johnston-Murphy said: “I can’t believe thieves would take the jackets that had the school logo and name on them, they would be totally useless to anyone else.

“I am really saddened by this and feel very sorry for the children.”
