The All Golds are delighted to announce a superb new strip for 2019.
Continuing the club’s excellent relationship with manufacturers O’Neills, the striking new blue kit complements their all black strip and showcases some of the businesses signed up as sponsors for the All Golds this season.
Cheltenham-based advanced engineering materials company Versarien plc takes pride of place on the front of the new shirt and All Golds’ director Lionel Hurst was keen to recognise the value of sponsorship to the club.
“I’d like to thank, on behalf of the All Golds, each and every sponsor supporting us this year.
“The support from local and national companies is the lifeblood of the club’s success and we’re very much looking forward to another successful season both on and off the field.”
The All Golds are proud of their history, roots and heritage and the cyan blue colour has been selected with that in mind.
According to Hurst there are three key reasons behind the choice of colour: “We are very keen to highlight the significance of the colour blue in the history of both the city of Gloucester where we are based and the sport of rugby league,” he said.
“Blue is the colour of the University of Gloucestershire who formerly owned the All Golds.
“Furthermore it is the colour of the city’s regiment during the English Civil War and very importantly the principal colour worn by England in The Great Match of the Edwardian Period in 1908 in the globally important match against the New Zealand All Golds in Regency Cheltenham.”
The kit is scheduled to be ready in time for the start of the new Southern Conference League when the All Golds travel to Valley Cougars on 4 May.
All items – shirts, shorts and socks – will be available for purchase via the All Golds’ club shop.
