Two fully completed versions of the 2007/08 Clyde FC replica strips were delivered to the club by Lotto this week and the Official Website brought fans exclusive pictures of them. Modelling the home top, sponsored by Optical Express, is Zoe Leverage and showing off the away top, sponsored by Gala Bingo, is Lauren Lamarr.
The away strip is, of course, a close match of the design of supporter George Paterson, whose popular entry won the 'Shirt ON Their Back' competition back in January.
Sale of the home strip in the Club Shop is now expected to commence in the week leading up to our first home game against Hamilton Accies. Commercial Director David Dalziel said:
"We had hoped for an earlier delivery date but the change in the logo selected by our main sponsor, Optical Express, and the introduction of a limited participation draw for our away kit, won by Gala Bingo, led to a very tight lead time for our suppliers, Lotto.
"We are enjoying significant benefits in our relationship with a leading international sportswear company, but the downside is they have many other clients in various sporting activities and production time for each client has to be very carefully allocated and is fairly inflexible.
"We hope that you will all agree that the new designs are well worth waiting for."
