Bedford Blues launch new kit

Bedford Blues have revealed their new kit for the 2014/15 Greene King IPA Championship season.

While the design of the new home and away kit had been kept a closely guarded secret, Blues fans will be happy to see the return of Cambridge and Oxford blue hoops.

It is being launched and worn by the players against Saracens on Friday, August 29.

The new, more traditional looking jersey will be available to purchase on the night in the club shop from 6pm.

There are some noticeable changes to the design of the new kit, including a new main sponsor.

Bedford-based company Blue Chip, who provide high quality support for IBM mid-range systems, have their logo emblazoned on the front of the jerseys which will once again be supplied courtesy of Zoo Sports.

Lifesure Insurance and Fire Safety Services will both be sponsoring the back of the new shirts, while Charles Wells’ Eagle Bitter logo will occupy the right arm sleeve.

Lifesure Insurance will also take pride of place on the rear of Blues’ shorts this 

Speaking about the new kit, Blues chairman Geoff Irvine said: “I think that everyone will be pleased with our new shirts for the coming season.

“A lot of hard work has gone into the design by Zoo Sports and ourselves to ensure that the kit is suitable for the players, while also being something that our fans will love.

“We are pleased to welcome a brand new sponsor to the front of the shirt as well as two sponsors on the back.

“Blue Chip, Lifesure Group and Fire Safety Services have been fantastic supporters of the club for many years now and I am thrilled that we will continue to work with each other.

“I would also like to put on record my thanks to Autoglass for their sponsorship over the past 11 years.

“We are delighted that they will continue to be associated with the club this season.”
