I have been in touch with Gary Fawcett this afternoon to try and clarify what's happening with the kit for next season as I was alarmed about doing away with the away kit due to RFL rules. This is what Gary told me earlier today, "we did try and get rid of the away strip for next year as the team only wore it 3 times during the year. When we approached the RFL they have told us that we couldn't do this and have to have both. The design for the new strip is all but finished and the new shirt will be available for Xmas"
I for one am happy about having both kits, sometimes the away kits are better than the home kits. I agree that they are usually a different colour and completely a different style but I think that's what a lot of fans find appealing. My other team that I follow weekly have had some of the best sales since there new pink away shirts were brought out.

I suppose it's personal choice really but I do prefer the sort of shirts like Wakey have come up with, clean, not fussy and bold.

I can see why the club would want to do away with a away kit if its not really going to be used.
It must be quite a cost.

So , we'll be seeing the new strip quite soon ....we also have rough costs
for a heritage shirt and also one a bit louder so I think the next step is to decide
on some basic designs when we have the next red and green meeting so we can
talk to suppliers and get some mock ups done. Could also do with knowing how
many people are interested and if Anyone has any ideas about sponsors to try and get the
price down a touch. Cheaper costs means more for the squad builder !

You could only assume that the total profit of selling an away kit is less than the cost of creating one for the players.

Assumption being the main point, until the club say one way or another in an official capacity we don't know whether it's true or not.


The away kit for the players is a sunk cost. They have to design it and produce it!

Suppliers such as Kukri and Samurai have facilities where they will discuss retail price of shirts and from there manage orders direct from supporters order via a direct link from the club's website to the supplier's. The supplier then deals with the payment and delivery of the shirt to the supporter and pass agreed margin to club. The club incurs NO additional costs.

The club are aware that such a facility exists.

Suppliers such as Kukri, Samurai, Raven Sports have a bespoke kit designers on their website which you can mock up draft designs.

Last seasons shirt manufacturer, Pier clearly didn't offer that facility as everything appeared to be done via the club.

That's right. I am led to believe that the club has had a meeting with Raven Sports recently so the shirt supplier must be up for grabs.

What we dont want to do is take revenue from the club by offering other shirts cheaper? Unless you know a lot of Keighley fans that are likely to buy several?

Completely agree.

The worst thing that PIRAG could do is go in to competition with the club. It would kind of defeat the object of the organisation in the first place. Might be worth opening a dialogue with the club as to what their opinion is and take it from there.

In my opinion I would have thought a vintage shirt would be fine, but something like the Batley one on here wouldn't go down too well.
