Leigh Centurions are extremely excited at the prospect of reaching the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final at the fantastic Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as no doubt are Sheffield Eagles, Barrow Raiders and Featherstone Rovers.
Given the short turnaround between knowing who the finalists will be and the final itself, the club is making preparations that can be immediately implemented should they be successful at the final whistle in Sunday’s semi-final.
Part of those preparations are a commemorative shirt which the players will wear and a special match day tracksuit and polo.
Competition sponsor AB Sundecks have designed a commemorative logo that both finalists will have access to, that the club intends to place on some leisure wear for retail sale as per the attached images (Please note the team names are subject to the results of the semi-finals and are for illustration purposes only and not in any way considered a predicted outcome).
The logo will appear in its normal format on the commemorative shirt with the text detail in the traditional format as can be seen on the image.
Leigh Centurions retail manager Gillian Jolley said: “With the final taking place so soon after the semi-final it leaves us a really tight window of opportunity for the club official kit supplier Ellgren to produce playing kit, replicas and leisure wear.
“Furthermore, the products relating to a final have a very short life span as once the event has taken place they become redundant stock, so in such circumstances we would always sell these products on a pre-order basis as we have previously done with Magic and Summer Bash replica shirts.
“As time does not permit us to follow this process, we have decided to take pre orders of the available products in the normal manner which can be accepted until 2pm on Sunday 8th May, at which point a final order would be provisionally complied, so that if successful it can be immediately placed, ensuring receipt at the club shop for collection ahead of the final.
“Should the club not be successful all deposits paid will be fully refunded in the manner they were received on Monday 9th May. Customers should be aware that card refunds can sometimes take a few days to appear as credits on their accounts due to their own bank handling processes.”
Prices for the items are as follows:
|Red Polo Shirt||£34.99|
|Red and White T-Shirt||£19.99|
|Replica Shirt||£47 Adult £37 Junior|
