As well as having to come up with a new club logo for the combined hockey club, we have also set ourselves the task of developing a new club kit, with everyone playing in the same colours. According to the club constitution, we are to play in purple.

The kit committee has come up with some preliminary designs and we can now offer you a sneak preview. These will need to be updated with sponsors' logos once agreements are finalised - as announced here recently, the second sponsor for the ladies is already in place, and wheels are in motion for the men's and Kobras sponsors. Watch this space.

The manufacturer is Adidas, which has a rather nice shade of purple in its range. The apparently monstrous size of the men's shorts is an accident of photography rather than a design feature!
