New Shirts Unveiled
by Scott Thornberry - 29th July 2009
Darlington Football Club have revealed the new designs for their replica shirts which have gone down a treat with the fans. The new 'all yellow' away kit will not be to everybodies taste but at least it is something different.
After revealing a couple of months ago that the hoops were being dropped the club had thought the decision would not go down too well with us. But after explaining the reasoning behind it then we had no quarms. Thankfully the new design, manafactured by Errea, looks very stylish and is sure to fly off the shelves when they come into stock in September.
Managing Director Graham Fordy, who worked for Errea after leaving his post at Middlesbrough several years ago, told the official website "The new design is a very bold design and we are sure it will go down well with the fans."
"We're well aware that the shirt does not replicate the black and white hoops of previous years, but we've done our market research, consulted with fans and we think it will be a very popular kit. This is a new beginning for the football club, in more ways than one, and so we felt it was important that the team were in a new strip this season."
"Colin Todd and the players are extremely keen on the new design as well, which always helps! The team's kit has just been completed, and we're already in the process of making the new shirt available to fans as quickly as possible, hopefully by September."
Mr Fordy added: "It's been very difficult to negotiate a deal with Errea under the club's recent circumstances, but I'm delighted they're now on board with us and we look forward to working with them over the coming years." I previously worked very closely with Errea during my time with Middlesbrough and I'm confident they eventually will produce a range of kit, training and leisurewear which will do down well with our supporters."
"Errea is a big company with a worldwide client-base and a superb reputation, so we're delighted to be working with them and we look forward to them bringing their expertise to Darlington."
