Hastings Conquerors, the towns American Football team have this week finally received their brand new match day Jerseys. The 50 jerseys feature logos from the sponsors who helped produce them. Rileys Sports Bar of Hastings, BBE Music, an independent record label from Hastings, and ADA Turkish Restaurant in Bexhill. The jerseys were manufactured in Detroit, Michigan to the customised design largely influenced by the members vote run by the co-operative club back in 2013 when the black and blue trim was voted in as the most popular colour scheme.
Conquerors Commercial Manager Luke Boorer said of the news “The shirt project has been the most exciting time that I have had whilst in my role. I would like to thank all three sponsors that came forward to offer us help with purchasing these jerseys. I was set the task, by the committee to find the best value shirt, without compromising quality. For this we used UK based Football America. David at Football America offered us everything we wanted from design, quality and cost, and was a fantastic help throughout the whole process. We were kept up to date from the manufacturer, Rawlings, one of football’s largest supplier, right the way through to delivery. I cant wait to see the looks on the boys faces. They have been training hard and I know they have been looking forward to wearing the new Conquerors shirt. The timing have been perfect for us. The shirts will be worn for the first time in the return leg of Sussex Thunder at Freshfields, one of the closest teams to us. To top this off, the match day is also a fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Care, in memory of our first shareholder Chrissy Bland. We are hoping that the day will be a fantastic event and another large step to seeing Conquerors make the league structure in 2015 ”
The jerseys are modelled below by Steve Calver, Martin Lau, Sam Oldfield and Meredith Pritchard.
Hastings Conquerors are at home this weekend in a practice scrimmage against visitors Wembley Stallions on July 20th. Kick off begins at 13:00 and entry is free.
