Newcastle Falcons unveil new Gilbert match kits

Newcastle Falcons have unveiled their new Gilbert match kits for the 2016-17 season, which will be worn for the first time at Saturday’s Singha Sevens.

The new home kit is black with dark grey detail on the shoulders, sides and back, while the away kit is a striking orange with white and grey trim.

Replica shirts are priced £49.99 for adults and £39.99 for juniors, and have a more generous fit compared to the match-authentic shirt. Match-authentic shirts are priced £69.99 for adults and £59.99 for juniors, the competition-weight shirt carrying the Aviva Premiership Rugby logo.

Both shirts carry the new Greene King logo across the front, Ward Hadaway across the upper back, Bidvest FoodService on the right sleeve and Aviva Premiership on the left sleeve.

Supporters can order the new kits now by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium club shop, calling 0191 214 2826 or going to http://www.shopfalcons.co.uk/, with season ticket members entitled to a 10% discount when buying before October 31.

Newcastle Falcons' managing director Mick Hogan said: "We are delighted to be showcasing our new Gilbert kits at the Singha 7s and believe they will prove popular.

"We have kept with our tradition of a predominantly black home kit with modern trim and finishes, while opting for a bold and completely new away kit. We believe this will be a firm favourite with supporter and we look forward to seeing fans and players alike wearing them over the course of the season."
 
Andy Challis, brand manager worldwide of Gilbert, said: "Gilbert are proud to partner with Falcons and we look forward to a successful season.
 
“Following an extensive design process we are very pleased with the outcome. Strong, bold and uncompromising – there will be no mistaking Falcons players and fans at home or away this season.
 
"The technical construction of the players' shirts remains and the replica shirts have several additional features which we hope all will enjoy."
