Fans' vote now open to decide Puritans' new kits
Banbury United fans are being given the chance to have their say on what the club’s new kit will look like for next season.
The voting opened yesterday (Wednesday) after the Puritans had confirmed that theterracestore.com have become the club’s new kit supplier from the 2020-21 campaign onwards.
The Banbury-based firm, who are currently licensed with Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Oxford United for their official merchandise, will also become the Puritans’ new floodlight sponsor until the end of the 2021-22 season.
The club’s commercial director Mark Allitt said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve been able to secure a tremendous deal with The Terrace.
“As a community club we love to work with companies based in our town, however Carl Sewell and Paul Towers are becoming well known nationally as well, so to work with the Terrace who are based in Banbury was a no-brainer.
“The potential the partnership has is immense and they have produced unique kit designs that will be exclusive to Banbury United.”
Fans are now able to vote on their favourite designs for both the home and away kits in an online survey by visiting http://terracelife.co/VOTE.
Everyone who votes has the option to go into a free draw to win one of the new shirts. Entry closes at 5pm on Sunday (June 14).
Carl Sewell, director of The Terrace, added: “This is an incredibly special partnership for The Terrace and for me personally.
“I am Banbury born and bred and for my company to now be producing my hometown’s club kit is really exciting and poignant.
“I played for the club when I was younger and my grandparents used to wash the kit, so the club has great memories for me.
“It is a proud moment that I’m now able to help them support and grow further.
“The Terrace has had rapid growth over the past few years, and we have been able to go into partnership with quite a few League clubs but to work with Banbury United, when we are based in the town, is great for both parties.
“For it to be fan owned as well, makes it even more special and we want to be part of the journey the club is making.”
And Puritans chairman Phil Lines said: “This is another exciting partnership for the club and we’re really looking forward to how it develops over the next couple of years.
“It is important we find the right partners in our community to help us move the club forward and to work with Carl and Paul is a great opportunity for the club. We’re really looking forward to working with them.”
