BENDIGO Thunder's season has taken a hit after thieves stole a few thousand dollars worth of uniforms.
Two blue duffle bags were taken from out the front of a property in Jobs Gully Road in Eaglehawk last Friday.
The bags contained about 10 spare playing jumpers, team dressing gowns, training bibs and brand new polo tops and shorts for new players.
Captain Emma Grant said while most of the majority of the players still had their playing jumpers, there would be no spares if something were to happen.
"Luckily we can still make do with what we've got. But if something happens from now on - if we get blood on them - then I don't know what we'd do," she said.
"It's pretty upsetting. They would be worth a couple of grand and for a women's football club that is quite a lot of money for us, so it is disappointing.
"We have worked pretty hard to get where we are at the moment. We have a few players who have signed up and now we are short on jumpers."
The jumpers are charcoal with a red, yellow and white pattern.
A post on the Bendigo Thunder's Facebook page explains the importance of the jumpers.
"Our footy jumpers represent more than just a piece of clothing, they are our identity on the field and they are part of every player who puts them on and runs out onto the field for our team," it reads.

"We are fortunate to have very distinctive jumpers that were designed by one of our own so if you happen to come across anything that may help us out please contact the club or the police."
Ms Grant said she was unsure why someone would want to take them.
"It's really weird. We are hoping they might turn up someone. Someone might have picked them up thinking they were better than what they are. They are no use to anyone else," she said.
"We would love for someone to drop them at the police station or maybe at a St Vinnies bin."
Ms Grant said if the uniforms were not returned the team would be forced to purchase more uniforms.
Bendigo Police posted an appeal for information of Eyewatch on Facebook.
"We have had a report from the Bendigo Woman's Football Club - Bendigo Thunder that they have had a couple of sports bags containing their playing tops and bibs go missing," the post reads.
"If anyone comes across these items could you please contact the Bendigo Police Station. It is hard to play without them and takes time and money to replace. Community assistance would be greatly appreciated."
The Thunder play in the division one of the Victorian Women's Football League.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the jumpers should contact Bendigo Police Station on 5448 1300.
