The logo is for a team attending a Melbourne Cup (Australian Horse Race) Dinner. It is a social event that is very lighhearted. The logo will go on the front of an honour cap (See http://www.albioncricket.com/customprodu... - for an example of the custom honour caps being made). The dinner is usually attended by older men and this team is a new team that is young in comparison. The team name "weight for age" is a lighthearted jab at the other tables attending (please see below an explanation of the racing term "Weight for Age".
Weight for Age (WFA) is a term in Thoroughbred horse racing which is one of the conditions for a race. It means that a horse will carry a set weight in accordance with the Weight for Age Scale. This weight varies depending on the horses age, its sex, the race distance and the month of the year. Weight for age races are usually Group 1 races, races of the highest quality.
WFA is a method of trying to equal out the physical progress which the average thoroughbred racehorse makes as it matures. The thoroughbred matures extremely quickly compared to the human being. By the age of two the horse has achieved 95% of its mature height and weight, and by the end of its third year it will be fully mature. To allow for this variation in maturity in the context of racing, it is necessary to express it as a function of the weight a horse will carry in a race. It is also necessary to take into account the race distance because stamina comes with maturity, and younger horses are at a greater disadvantage the further they have to run. If no allowance was made, a mature older horse would always beat a younger one.
