Walsall 2008/09 home and away Swift football kits

After agreeing a 12-month shirt sponsorship extension with EasyFit, Walsall unveiled their Home and away kits made by Swift at the Banks's Stadium.

"We are delighted to have EasyFit on board as shirt sponsors for the new campaign," said Commercial Director, Roy Whalley. "EasyFit are the largest conservatory company in the Midlands and they are a Walsall-based company with major links to the local area.

"I would like to thank Mark Gibbins and Paul Wilding for this sponsorship and we are delighted to be working with them again."

After reverting back to the traditional home colours of white shirts and red shorts last season, The Saddlers will once again be sporting these popular colours during the course of the upcoming campaign, with the addition of white socks. The main body of the shirt is white with a smart red piping, mesh panels for a more breathable feel, and a commemorative badge signifying the club's 120th Anniversary.

The away kit will see The Saddlers wearing black for the first time in their history.

The shirt, which is black with a red trim, will also feature mesh panels and the commemorative badge. The shorts and socks will be black with a red trim but an alternative red short and sock combination will be in place if required. Both strips feature 'CoolDry' technology, which increases air permeability allowing for a quick drying and 'sweat free' feel. The club's nickname will also be adorned on the inside back of the collar.

"The return to white home shirts was very popular last season," added Roy Whalley. "This design suited us so well during the 1960's and 1970's and has caught the imagination of the current generation of Saddlers' supporters.

"The black away kit is something we have not tried before but I'm sure it will prove to be extremely popular."

The club have once again teamed up with West Bromwich-based company, Mann Brothers Ltd., to manufacture the playing, training and replica kit for the 2008/09 season.

Under the 'Swift' brand, and using Mann Brothers as manufacturers, all the revenue received from replica kit sales will go directly to the football club. The Saddlers' 2007/08 yellow third strip will again be used should there be a colour-clash with a home side during the 2008/09 campaign. The new home and away kits will be on sale from early July and the price of the replica kits has been frozen on 2007/08 prices.
