Geoff Chapple has asked us to pass on the following information about the Clubâ€™s new kit:
The new Vandanel kit worn by the team on Saturday will not be the normal away kit throughout the season. A contingency plan had been put in place by me just in case our new team kits had not arrived. In fact, they did arrive at Stansted Airport on Friday afternoon. I therefore drove to Loughton in Essex on Friday evening (Vandanelâ€™s Head Office) and was given the option of waiting for our official kits to be badged up and embroidered (this would have taken 6 hours) or accept the contingency kit which had already been put in place. Due to the time factor, I opted for the latter, with Vandanelâ€™s consent.
I have also been advised that the replica kits should be available for sale in the next two to three weeks. I am sorry that I canâ€™t be more precise about an exact date, but will let you know once this is confirmed.
