Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce our new 2020-21 home and away shirts are available to order online from the club shop now.
The custom shirts, designed in collaboration with Spirit of 58’s Tim Williams, celebrate the club’s history and home with some unique design features.
We are pleased to confirm Wrexham AFC’s traditional red-and-white colours remain on the home shirt, while the green away shirt celebrates the club’s former kit colours – 100 years on from the final season Wrexham wore green at home.
Ifor Williams Trailers are our front-of-shirt sponsors, taking our partnership with Britain’s leading trailer manufacture – who are based out of North Wales – into a fifth consecutive season.
We can also confirm two more locally-based firms continue their sponsorship of the shirt, with AEC Engineering Ltd as back-of-shirt sponsors and Peter Gwyn Potatoes as sleeve sponsors.
The Views Change; The Feelings Remain
In the biggest change from previous seasons, where we put template kits out to supporters to vote on their favourites, this year’s kit features a bespoke design.
Designed in collaboration with Spirit of 58’s Tim Williams, the Macron shirts feature an embossed silhouette of the Mold Road stand, complete with the club’s name on the seats.
The sponsors logos are also embossed into the fabric as opposed to being pressed, for a higher-quality shirt.
Celebrating our Racecourse home and the club’s heritage, the home shirt also features a red-and-white striped collar – a throwback to some of our popular shirts from the early 1990s.
The shirts and shorts are available to order now and we can also confirm that, for the 2020-21 season, they will be paired with white shorts and white socks.
The away shirt also celebrates the club’s past and comes in a unique, custom green colour – the shade is not available ‘off-the-peg’.
The 2020-21 season marks 100 years since Wrexham last wore green as the club’s home colours – which they did from 1904 to 1921.
As with the 1920-21 shirt, our new bespoke away shirt includes a white collar. Again, it also comes complete with an embossed silhouette of the Mold Road stand.
The green away shirt will be paired with black shorts and green socks. The away shirt and shorts are also available to order now.
Speaking about the shirts and the partnership between Spirit of 58, Wrexham AFC and Macron, Tim Williams said:
“It was a privilege to be asked to be involved, but I don’t want to take all the credit. Everybody has had some input – Wendy and Mike at Macron and the club.
“We haven’t just gone and got a catalogue and picked something out. There’s a big thought process gone into this.
“I don’t think pictures do it justice either. The kit feels great too. I think it’s the best shirt we’ve done with Macron Wrexham and as a fan it is a proud moment to be a part of it.
“People are crying out for ways to support the club at this time and buying the shirt is a way to do it. We can wear it with pride when we’re able to and football returns.”
Ifor Williams Trailers
We are delighted to again be partnered with Ifor Williams Trailers as our front-of-shirt sponsor.
We were pleased to welcome staff from Ifor Williams Trailers to the kit launch, as we celebrate a fifth consecutive season with the North Wales-based brand.
Speaking of Ifor Williams Trailers’ continued commitment to Wrexham AFC, human resources manager Richard Hughes said: “We have a lot of die-hard Wrexham AFC fans working at Ifor Williams Trailers, including season ticket holders and Wrexham Supporters’ Trust members.
“The club is going through an extremely difficult time at the moment and the lost match-day income has been a big blow.
“We wanted to reaffirm our commitment to the club in these uncertain times because as a community-based club their ethos is a great match for our values at Ifor Williams Trailers.”
Wrexham AFC director Gavin Jones thanked the company for their continued support at a time of economic uncertainty.
He said: “When the going gets tough, you find out who your friends are and Ifor Williams Trailers is a true friend of Wrexham AFC.”
AEC Engineering continue as our back-of-shirt sponsor and Peter Gwyn Potatoes are our sleeve sponsor.
Wrexham AFC is delighted both sponsors have continued their partnership with the Football Club for another season. We are proud to be partnered with three locally-based sponsors, all of whom are valued supporters of the club.
The shirts are available to order now. Orders can be placed through the club website while the club shop remains closed. We will update supporters when the club shop re-opens for business.
Every shirt sold will help to safeguard the club’s future and cover the club’s outgoings while there is no football on.
For example, selling 5,000 shirts will cover the rent payment due shortly on the Racecourse Ground. So, you are not just buying a stunning, bespoke new Wrexham shirt, celebrating the club’s home and heritage, but also helping to safeguard’s the club’s future.
Our new, bespoke shirts are priced at £44.95 for adult sizes and £37.50 for children’s sizes and we anticipate a six-week wait for delivery due to the ongoing pandemic. Shirt sizes cover from 5XS to 3XL.
Shorts are £17 for adults and £15 for youth sizes (3XS-5XL), while socks can be bought at £9.99 in adult sizes and £7.99 in child sizes (XS-XL home, XS-S away).
Our new shirts have been modelled by club captain Shaun Pearson, back-to-back Goal of the Season winner Luke Young, and Wrexham AFC Women star Kim Dutton.
Speaking of the new kit, Luke Young said: “It’s a nice fit. It’s smart. First impressions are good.
“When it’s got that bit about it, and the history on the kit itself, it bodes well for hopefully good reviews from the fans.
“It’s a nice fit. It’s not baggy, not too tight. As a general feel, it’s nice and light. It sets you up well when you have a nice kit.”
He added: “You’ve got to hold your hands up to the sponsors. It’s good to have regular sponsors who stick with the team, and it’s a big thanks to them.”
Kim Dutton added: “I love the custom design of the stand – it’s where I sit, and I’ve sat there for years with my brother, Mum and Dad. It’s a nice extra touch that I think a lot of people will like.
“It feels nice and comfortable and not too tight. The kit quality makes a big difference when you’re playing. If you’re not comfortable, you might not be playing your best.
“It’s extra special that it’s a unique kit. I’ve seen teams on telly, and my Dad says ‘that looks like so-and-so’s kit. It’s the same. To know it’s unique to us, and everyone can look back and say that’s Wrexham’s and only Wrexham’s is the best thing.”
