Today marked the launch of the new kits, available for fans to purchase. Fans were excited to get their hands on the new gear, in what was a successful days business for the club.
Fans were queuing at the door ready for the shop to open this morning. The queues were constant all day, with a mixture of home and away shirts flying off the shelves. The club and fans were adhering to social distancing measures, and government guidelines, that meant the shop remained safe for both fans, and staff.
@LeeReyn46555467 bought a total of 6 shirts, 3 home and 3 away for himself and his family. Lee gave his thoughts after getting to see them up close ‘I like both the home and away shirts. If I have to pick 1 to wear then I would slightly prefer the away shirt’ He then added ‘both top quality, but I think the away shirt for me looks very sharp’, He particularly liked the design of the away shirt, with the red and black breaking through ‘Maybe what’s swaying me more to the away shirt is that it looks more like the black country flag’
There was a very satisfied customer in @PaulRussell63, who not only loved the kit, but being back at the Bescot too! ‘Well chuffed with mine, It really was a great atmosphere in the queues, Never known this club so united!’
Another fan who got his hands on a shirt today was @news_spr (Simon) who took a liking to the away shirt too ‘New away shirt is retro stylish and had to grab on the first day’ Simon then went on to give a rallying cry to fellow fans ‘all saddlers fans should grab one for big season ahead’
The away kit certainly seemed to be a popular choice, with @adampratley also commenting on how good it looks ‘Got myself the away shirt cause it looks great. Looks even better in the flesh really happy with it and glad they released it now to get much needed funds into the club.
Finally, Supporter Liason Officer Graham Whittaker echoed those happy customers by saying ‘The supporters love the new kits and they will look great at the promotion party. Please buy a kit and support our club.’
I did not get a chance to get mine yet, but I will as soon as I can. Please be patient with the club, they are doing their best to keep the club shop safe for all, and to keep queues moving as quickly as possible. Shirts are also available online for those who would prefer to purchase from the comfort of their own home!
