Shrewsbury Town Football Club have been delighted to help our fans team get a full new kit for the 2019/20 season as they come back from a hiatus of three seasons. Working with the STFC ASFC the club and Admiral provided 23 shirts and a full goalkeepers kit to the fans. Alongside this, the STFC ASFC launched a successful fundraising campaign and also paid for socks and shorts for a full kit.
The fans team has been established since the 1980s, first under Chris Smith and then Chris Wynne and has always given fans of the club a chance to turn out in the beloved blue and amber against fans of other teams that the first team play in the afternoon. This season the team returned with new vigour and many new faces. The team have already played seven games home and away with an excellent start to the season under their belt.
But one thing was missing, and that was the kit. STFC ASFC manager Glyn Price spoke to the club and said “We're so grateful to Brian, Sib and Simon at the club as well as Admiral for helping us get back in Blue and Amber so we can represent this football club properly. The kit is fantastic, although I think we should have ordered a couple of XXL shirts.”
The shirts got the first outing away at Watford in the morning before the senior team played Wycombe and STFC ASFC Captain Paul Coyne commented “It was great to get out in the kits against Watford and it finally felt like the STFC ASFC is back. We didn’t get the result we wanted, but it was another giant step forward to establishing the team for the next few years.”
The STFC ASFC team is open to all Shrewsbury Town Fans. Games are played Saturday mornings home and away before the afternoon games. If fans are interested in getting involved, then contact the STFC ASFC on twitter at @STFC_ASFC or contact the Shrewsbury Town Supporters Liaison officers at firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will put you in touch with the management.
We hope the lads go onto have a good season in the kit and keep representing the club well when meeting fans of other clubs.
