Some fans are asking when the new kit will be available for purchase and are understandably getting a little anxious that it won’t be out in time for Christmas.
The production of a new kit is a minefield for all clubs, we have to take into consideration other strips, changes the fans have suggested, and also supplier and sponsors. All this then has to be sanctioned by the RFL before we can even consider production. Then we have to find sponsors to fill the shirt, this as I am sure you can imagine isn’t always easy. But all this is time consuming and for the majority of the time is completely out of our hands.
Then there is cost – This directly effects the club and the fans and we must therefore try and get the best deal we can for us all.
Whilst all this is going on there are multiple other clubs all facing the same issues and deadlines and manufactures start having to outsource work to other UK companies. This is the position we are at now, our shirts are in production right this minute, and we are planning a launch night as soon as a confirmed date is given. It makes no sense to announce a date which we then have to change and that is why we are waiting until we have absolute confirmation.
Rest assured, getting the kit out before Christmas is our primary concern and the club is in touch with the manufacturer on a daily basis trying to ascertain dates and ensure that we can get this out to the fans as soon as we can.
Please appreciate that we are doing absolutely everything in our power and will continue to do so until the kit is delivered and a launch night arranged.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.
