Kit mix-up leads to new away strip for Rams
Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Ramsbottom United have ditched their traditional red and black away kit by accident!
Needing to renew their second strip this summer for the new top flight campaign, officials at the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium contacted their kit supplier who proceeded to send them a mock-up of the new design. Instead of the black shorts and black trim they’ve turned out in for years, a new all red strip with white piping was sent by mistake but luckily found favour with chairman Harry Williams.
A Rams spokesman said: “Our chairman took a look at the new drawings, decided that he was more than impressed with the design, and promptly decided that, after years of red and black, the Rams would this season take on the new look wherever a change of strip was required.”
