Dig Out Those Shirts

12 July 2012

Drop them into the club shop

It's time to clear out your cupboards to make room for the new Exeter City kit, which will be arriving in the club shop at the start of next month.

And as a bonus, if you bring your old shirt - and also shorts, boots or even shinpads - back to the club shop, we will send it to our friends in Brazil at the charity Children's Aid, which helps children from the favelas - slums - of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

"The club is delighted to help children living in such terrible circumstances. The charity is close to our hearts as it is run in Brazil by Ricardo Calcado, who helped bring the Brazilian Masters team here in 2004 for our centenary and his mother, Vera, runs the English arm from her Teignmouth base. We handed over a lot of kit last season, (including those pictured)so I hope we can do even better this year," says Bruce Henderson, the club's business development manager.

"And we are also holding a shirt amnesty for this event, so it doesn't have to be a Grecian shirt you hand in - why not bring in your Manchester United kit and take home an Exeter City one instead?"

The new shirt will go on sale on Sunday 5th August as part of a special family fun day at St James Park. The event will include an open training session giving supporters the chance, for the first time, to hear Paul Tisdale as he talks through his drills and routines with the first-team squad. There will also be a chance to have your photograph taken with the players and other special events.

The new kit is manufactured by Joma, who also work with Valencia and Fiorentina, as well as our Centre of Excellence squads, and have over 40 years experience in producing the highest quality technical team apparel. This deal means that there will be new home and away kits for the 2012/13 League Two campaign, with the away kit being something of a departure from previous seasons, as well as a whole new range of training kit.
