We regret to announce that due to a failure by Errea, the manufacturer of the club’s playing kit, the in-store release of the 2019-20 home kit has been delayed.
Errea informed the club at the end of last week that it is unable to fulfil the delivery schedule agreed several weeks ago because of production errors in its factory. We have been further informed that, notwithstanding that agreed delivery schedule, Errea has not yet commenced manufacturing the replica home kit.
The club is extremely disappointed by this news and feels very badly let down by Errea, given that until receiving this news it was fully expected that the kit would be on sale for this weekend’s game against Bristol Rovers. It is unclear exactly how a failure of this magnitude could occur, but fans can be assured that we will continue to ask questions of Errea in order to gain a complete understanding of the situation.
It is now anticipated that the new home kit will arrive late August/early September, however the club will continue to do everything within its power to have the kit on sale as soon as possible.
Pre-orders for the new home shirt remain valid, with items to be dispatched once in stock. The club would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
In the meantime, the club can confirm that the release of the new away kit has been brought forward, allowing supporters to purchase it from 8.30am tomorrow (Friday).
