  1. alright guys,

    i go AFC Harrogate in under 2 weeks and i was wondering will my height play a problem in kit issueing or activities

    im 5 ft 7 but still growing

    any help would be much appreciated, thanks
     
  2. Id say no.... I know blokes at 6ft 7in and women who are 5 ft 1in.

    Doesnt matter what size you are.
     
  3. thanks, that is reassuring :)
     
  4. You wouldn't have got this far if it would be a problem.
     
  5. If you're worried about outgrowing your kit, I don't think it'll be a problem. You'll probably get issued with replacements if you do end up outgrowing them, otherwise, you're height isn't too bad - I'm 5'8.
     
  6. yeah thats true
    im sure there will be some recruits smaller than me or around the same height so i probably wont be alone
    thanks for the replies
     
  7. Don't worry Kyle, army kit comes in two sizes











    Too big or too small
