Great reaction to Workington Town's new kit
Last updated at 20:03, Thursday, 03 November 2011
Reaction to Workington Town’s iconic new kit with an etching of Gus Risman lifting the Challenge Cup has been great, according to the club’s commercial manager Barry Scholey.
Fans have taken to the plans to bring back a traditional blue shirt with a maroon badge, and a full range of training kit and leisurewear is now being launched.
Scholey said: “The response to the launch of the new expanded range of merchandise has been excellent, with demand far exceeding that of previous seasons.
“I’d urge people to pre-order before the November 15 as this is the cut off point for orders before Christmas and we don’t want anyone to miss out. We’ve launched the merchandise earlier this season to allow the supporters the opportunity to purchase their gifts in time for Christmas, and will also be launching the new away kit on our website on Christmas day to spread the cost of buying the merchandise.”
The news come days after Stephen Dawes, Matthew Tunstall and James Robinson agreed to re-sign at Derwent Park. Tunstall rejoined Town just before the start of last season after a great term with amateurs Seaton but missed most of the year through injury.
Town chairman Dave Bowden is confident that once back to full fitness Tunstall will be a force to be reckoned with.
He said: “I think he has got at least one more season left in him. He showed a lot of what he could do when we played Swinton away back in March. He was a bit of a handful on that day.
“We want to see him back to full fitness and he has got all of the close season to get up and running and we still believe he has a lot to offer.”
Robinson has been a loyal servant to the Derwent Park club, having been wearing the blue and white since 2003.
And Bowden is delighted that the 32-year old second rower has committed himself for another year.
He said: “James is an absolute stalwart for us and people keep underestimating him.
“Last season he put in some really good performances and he has certainly earned the right to another contract.”
