The votes have been cast and the winner is...The polls have closed, the votes have been counted and the decision has been taken on the home kit Shrewsbury Town will wear for the 2016/17 season.
Five choices were put our for the Town supporters to vote on from supporters designs, Junior Supporters designs and others suggested by kit partner Errea.
All designs received votes but after the votes with a valid supporter number were counted it was designs A and C which were the clear favourites of those who were voting.
In the end the club have decided that it will be Design C which was designed by Stuart Crocker from Shrewsbury which will be the home kit from next season. Stuart has been a supporter of the club for a number of years and believed that his design was innovative but still kept the traditional Shrewsbury Town elements of blue and amber stripes.
Stuart said “Hopefully my design for the new strip is both innovative, yet still retains traditional elements. The plain blue panel on the upper part of the shirt will allow the sponsor’s name and club badge to be clearly displayed on the front, while player numbers and names are easily distinguishable on the rear. The blue and amber stripes beloved by most fans, are retained on the lower part of the shirt.'
Town’s CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased with the reactions to the vote and hopes the design will be one the Shrewsbury Town supporters will like.
“It was great to have so many votes come in on which kit we will be wearing next season and there were some excellent designs for the supporters to vote on”, said Brian.
“There were votes for all the designs and it shows that everyone has their own favourite when it comes to a decision such as this.
“Designs A and C were the clear favourites from the majority of the supporters and we’re delighted that C will be the one that Errea will use to make next seasons kit.
“From the feedback we have had and the comments on social media that a lot of people have made it seems that people would like to buy Design C.
“Design C is a little different from Design A but it keeps with the clubs traditional blue and amber stripes.
“Errea will now start the work to get the kit ready and we will be aiming to launch it towards the end of this season.”
