Another weekend with no action – but let’s stay positive and conform to the rules

Design a shirt for the 90thanniversary

Are you artistic? Imaginative? Have a go at designing the front and back of a 90thanniversary shirt to form part of a new kit for one of our teams. Pictured is the 80th year shirt (replica of the original 1930 strip) purchased at an end-of-season auction by Lee Milton for a bargain £400 and on display in the clubhouse. Send your questions and/or ideas to our kit officer Leah-Ann Mooney at leahannmooney@gmail.com. A sponsor for this one-off bespoke kit is sought and enquiries should be sent to infobgfc1930@gmail.com. After one season, the kit will be auctioned off and whichever team wears it will have a standard replacement the following season. Get drawing! There might be a prize for the winner – and a place in history.
