PostSubject: RETRO SHIRTS   Sat Jan 07, 2012 1:50 pm

[i]Whilst the "Giants" is now well established as the club name --many of the longstanding fans have an affinity for FARTOWN still!!--and many fond memories of the old Mecca

Also I know many former players have been asked if they would be willing to part (for payment) with one of their traditional club shirts with the broad claret and narrow gold stripes

Many of these lads only played for one club at the shirt means a lot more to them than many of today`s players who often finish their career having played for 5 or more clubs along the way

But the players association are hoping to get replica shirts of "old" made and if any supporters are interested make these available to fans
The hope is to keep costs as low as possible --which will depend obviously on "demand" --and as such its a chicken and egg situation

There has been quite a few fans contact me regarding this initiative on a tentative basis and I also have some who`ve made a deposit ( returnable if it doesnt happen) which places them on a "first come" -"first served" list but anyone else seriously interested please PM me asap so that the price can be kept as competitive as possible.

The idea is purely to try satisfy a "demand" and not a money spinner and the players committee are trying to achieve a selling price of around 35 maximum -it could be less but it all comes down to "numbers"
In addition --the aim is to get these sorted asap for the oncoming season so --IF YOURE INTERESTED GET IN TOUCH AND ILL LET YOU HAVE MORE DETAILS
There are two possible fabrics available at different prices and samples are being sent so that we hopefully get the best for the job wear wise /price / "summer rugby" and when someone shows me how to work these damn PC things - I`ll post a piccie of the "prototype" OK??

Wait to hear from you.

Picked my shirt up from PG on Sunday and have to say I am delighted with it.
The quality is fantastic and it's great to have a "proper" C&G shirt to wear to games.
Anyone who gets one won't be disappointed and will be wearing mine with pride to every game.

Cheers Rod and keep up the good work fella Smile cheers

Fantastic shirt Matt absolutely love it mate. Just what I was looking for tbh fella. PG has done a great job and could tell he wanted them to be just right. Nice to have a proper C&G shirt to wear again.

Got mine last night, brilliant shirt, proper Fartown shirt traditional Claret & Gold colours, good quality, far superior to the cheap crap the club sell at vastly over inflated prices, someone in the marketing department should take a good look at these retro shirts and try and match them for quality and price. Big well done to Rod ( Penninegiant ) for his efforts Smile

My Dad got his yesterday. He seems well chuffed with it. It reminded me of when my kids were small and got the spiderman outfit for xmas and didn't want to take it off. I think he may have slept in it last night. Very Happy

Got ours last week and we think they're great, far better quality and at a lot fairer price than the official ones, but still a proper Fartown shirt.

Thanks again Rod
