This jumper clash will be avoided on Saturday.

The worst jumper clash in the Central Highlands Football League will be avoided this weekend. And it’s all for a good cause.

Clunes and Dunnstown sport similar black and white jumpers, but the Magpies’ senior players will wear a bright pink design this Saturday.

The new strip is being used to support Pink Ribbon and the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre.

Clunes’ A-grade, B-grade and C-grade netballers will also wear a flashy pink dress for their battles with the Towners.

The uniforms have been donated by Shayne Reese Swimming and Concrete Creations Ballarat, with the Clunes players to donate the cost of the jumpers and dresses to support the charity organisations.

Special guest speaker Janet Harrison will talk at half time of the senior game about her own battle with breast cancer, as well as the importance of raising awareness and funds needed to beat the disease.

The day will also be supported with female central umpire Amanda Guthrie officiating the senior football encounter.
