I was on the Sharlston bus and stood with Terry at the game. We went for our tea in a Lyons' Corner House. If I remember right Vic was a tall lad with ginger hair. Phil Loxton was there as well

Ha, I have no say in the kit design apart from the sponsors going on!

I like the home design actually, looks good. Just need to make the PROBIZ logo a bit larger Matt. Also there is another new sponsor going on the same sleeve as CPM.

Not sure on the one with the crest though :unsure:

Tough job choosing kit designs as everyone as their own opinion!


I know, I did that one to be the ugliest shirt ever seen... can't believe the reception :laugh:

Anyway, more midnight boredom...

a pedant writes

it isn't a crest: it's a coat of arms.
the crest is the decoration on top of the sheild including the helm and so on.

I'm sorry Lorne but I just can't stop myself :wacko:

I had to get to Sharlston on the pit bus.

I was all kitted out in blue and white. I got as few mucky lucks from blokes who were going to spend the day in the bowels of the earth and couldn't go to the game themselves.

the word crest is used in other contexts. That's a very interesting object, tell me more.

On a coat of arms you have a shield, the field of the shield is the way the design is laid out. On top of that you have the helm, on top of that is the crest-fevs consists of the prince wales feathers and those arrows. Draped from the hem are if I remember rightly vestments. The ones on Rovers COA are 'slashed', all that wavy stuff. It means that the bearer of the arms has been battles. At the side of the shield are the supporters-Lions rampant in this case, then at the bottom is the motto.

the design on the field represents agriculture, coal mining, the three ridings of yorkshire. I'm not sure about the lion-it could be something to do with the lord of thre manor-lord St Oswald or something like that.

there serves you right :biggrin:

Reminisce Phil. I love this "living history" stuff from a different era. Tales of all things rovers from a time when the world looked a different place I find fascinating!
I was only 6 in 67 when we won the cup so tales of the day make happy reading.
