Never before have the team utilised their third kit and we’re thrilled to have this UK wide platform to raise awareness of the work we do, coverage will be on EFL Highlights on Quest, available on Freeview, Freesat and Sky Channel 144, plus Sky Sports Highlights Goals Express
All profits from sale of the 250 limited-edition shirts will go directly to the Trust, taking us halfway to our £10k target for the partnership across this current season, plus we will also receive all proceeds from the advertising we are able to sell in the matchday digital programme.
The Limited-Edition Shirts are available in a range of sizes, Adults Shirts are priced at £40 and Junior Shirts priced at £30
