AFC Rushden & Diamonds today unveil the new home and away kit for the forthcoming 2012/13 season.
The playing strip was designed by Mark Southwell who won the kit design competition following a fans vote in April 2012
The Home kit features the club colours of red white and blue along with a unique sublimated club badge within the fabric of the shirt. The playing strip will also see the first team and Under 18s return to wearing white socks.
The Away strip is a traditional yellow and black again with the sublimated club badge within the fabric of the shirt.
Vice Chairman Jon Ward commented on the new shirt “It has been a lot of hardwork from Mark, the club and Tempest to come up with this fantastic bespoke shirt. We wanted something special for the inaugural season and I think we have achieved that with this playing strip.”
The kit is modeled by new signings Alfie Taylor, and Aynsley McDonald and goalkeeper Quincy Shorunmu.
The players will wear the new kit at the historic first ever senior match against Wellingborough Town on Saturday 14th July and fans will be able to pre order replica shirts at the match. The replica shirts will also be available on a pre order online via the club shop.
Replica shirts will be priced as follows:
Adults Replica Shirt £37.50
Childs Replica Shirt £27.50
AFC Rushden & Diamonds are also delighted to announce a 10% discount for all existing members on replica shirts and all other merchandise in the club shop starting tomorrow (Saturday July 14th).
