THE Murray Magpies have been embarrassed with celebrity guest player and an umpire victims of a clubroom thief on Saturday night.

Former AFL star Jason Akermanis had items — believed to be his wedding ring and mobile phone — taken from his bag at the Lavington Oval as the Magpies lost by 92 points to Lockhart.

And the car keys of umpire Greg Bulman were taken from his bag in the changerooms.

His white Mitsubishi Lancer was driven away and later found outside Red Rooster on Wagga Road.

Club president Ted Miller said the incident was “a bit disappointing”, but he believed the blame couldn’t necessarily be pinned on those linked to the club.

“It could be anyone — there was a lot going in and out — but we’ll do what we can to follow it up,” Mr Miller said.
