Gillingham 12/13 Centenary Vandanel Football Shirt Designs

Gillingham FC has unveiled a centenary kit which will be worn next season. Next season is a big one for the club as they celebrate 100 years of being known as Gilllingham FC.

The club was founded in 1893 as New Brompton, but changed its name for the 1912/13 campaign, with the official name change being completed at the end of that season.

A number of things are planned next season to commemorate this special event, and the first of them to be announced is this new kit, which is a reproduction of the kit the team wore in that first season as The Gills. It also has the town's coat of arms as the badge, with the club's crest on the sleeve.

Chairman Paul Scally said in his programme notes for yesterday's game with Dagenham & Redbridge: "As many of you will be aware, while Gillingham Football Club has been established for about 118 years, we are actually celebrating our centenary as being named Gillingham Football Club this coming season.

"As such we have reproduced the playing kit worn by the team 100 years ago (pictured below), and will be playing in that kit next season as a tribute to everyone connected to this fine club over the last century.

"There will be a home and away strip, in both short and long sleeve, and we have reproduced the kit in an identical way to that of 1912/13, including the coat of arms badge and other detail of that time.

"We hope you like the idea, and indeed the strip, those who have seen it so far think it's a stunning design and a great idea."

The shirts are to go on sale in July, but will be able to be pre-ordered - and there is a special deal for season-ticket holders.

Mr Scally explained: "As an additional bonus, we are offering a special deal to the first 2,000 adult season ticket holders who purchase/renew their season tickets for next season.

"For every adult season ticket purchased we will allow you to redeem a voucher in our shop whereby for just £60 you can purchase both the home and away historic collector's shirt, a once-in-a-lifetime offer for a special piece of club history.

"Stocks will be limited and this offer is strictly for season ticket holders only and applicable to adult-size shirts.
