Special blue kit goes on sale at The Brewery

7 December 2017

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, with a hint of blue!

We've been inundated with enquiries about the one-off strip since revealing it on Friday afternoon.

The jersey, created to show our support for the British Lung Foundation at next weekend's match against Crewe Alexandra, has been well received by supporters.

Because of the response we've decided to stock a limited run of shirts to help raise as much money for the charity as possible.

They will be on sale for the first time at our pop-up Christmas shop this Thursday (December 7, 6pm – 8pm) at The Brewery in the town centre.

There we will be selling a range of club merchandise as well as our new calendar, which will be reduced by 20% for the evening.

We have replica kit, hoodies, leisurewear and plenty of accessories to fill Santa's sack this Christmas.

Our Community Trust will also be out in force with a festive 'Hot Shot' and fans will be able to pit themselves against the players.

So come along and say hello, challenge the players and finish your festive shopping while you're at it!

An adult blue shirt will be £40 and juniors for £30 plus a suggested donation of £5 towards the British Lung Foundation.

Blue day – Crewe Alexandra next Saturday

Tickets for next weekend's League Two match against Crewe Alexandra, who this afternoon hit back from three down inside 20 minutes to earn an FA Cup second round replay against Blackburn Rovers, are available online.

The club, Robins Trust and the British Lung Foundation have worked together to turn the club blue for the first time at home in the our history.

The players of course are doing their bit in the new strip, and supporters are urged to wear blue in the stands.

Lakefest resident and Whaddon Road regular DJ Shippers will be building up the atmosphere with a 'Fans Fest' set from 12.30pm in the main bar.

A bucket colleciton by youth players, Robins Trust members and represeentitives of the charity will be held on our four sides of the ground.

And there will be an auction of one of the players' shirts from the match, immediately afterwards.

It promises to be a special occasion and a fantastic show of togetherness – keep your eyes peeled this week for more information.
