Hi Everyone,

I seem to have this magic ability to destroy any kit that comes my way.

I've just had to replace all my socks as most have holes in or don't match.

Now 4 things have all died on me and I need replacements.

1st - My Tracksuit Bottoms. I had been using my old Suffolk Society Tracksuit Bottoms from these guys http://www.stc-teamwear.com/ and after 3 years they have just ripped down the bottoms and cannot be sown up again. My Manchester ones that I spent far too much money on are horrible to wear and don't fit properly.

I am a 2XL pretty much - anyone know a company that does them cheap and relatively loose?

2nd - Referee Wallet. Another Suffolk Society thing that has just completely died. What do you guys use and where can I get them from?

3rd - Running trainers. I've used these alot more than I used to as we have had a slightly dry rugby season for once. I even used them this weekend when let's be honest the ground was far too wet. I've noticed they are starting to fall apart and need replacing sooner rather than later. I normally wear New Balance but can anyone recommend something that will last longer than a year - I have a wide based foot and can't spend too much money. I wear an 11 and a half in New Balance if that helps.

4th - Moulds. I have used these pretty much between November and the end of March between 2 and 6 times a week. I was using a pair of Kooga ones I brought for a tenner - but they have just fallen apart completely. I also wear an 11 and a half.

I need the 1st 3 before the 12th and the 4th before the 26th.

So can anyone recommend anything that would fit my tight student budget (AKA as cheap as possible that will last as long as possible) that might at least last until next Christmas when my parents may be asked very nicely for some new kit ;)

Thanks,

PS - before anyone mentions the GPS watch - it's actually very good and I use it alot ;)

Host of wallets available here: http://www.acasports.co.uk/index.php?cPath=288_716

I can send you (from stock) the Rucanor one (Item 26) for 3.50 plus 2nd Class postage (should be Letter rate). PM me.

But I use a Rail card wallet at half the size, and free!

For generic cheap kit, Sports Direct (http://www.sportsdirect.com/) is worth a look, particularly if you can go into a store incognito. I have an excellent pair of 25 Patrick boots from them.

I've PM'd you. I had a look at my local Sports Direct today and they didn't have anything in my size that would be remotely suitable.

I did buy my new socks from there. 4 pairs for 10 in different colours seemed very good!
