MANSFIELD TOWN have revealed their new home kit for the 2011/12 season, available to buy now and sponsored by Greene King.

The shirt is made up of an amber body with a blue strip on the right shoulder, with royal blue shorts and socks.

The Stags’ new home & away shirt sponsors, Greene King, are a leading pub retailer, and have been operating for over 200 years.Its Free Trade Director, Joe Parks said on the day of the unveiling: “We’re absolutely delighted to be the new sponsors of Mansfield Town. When Steve Barker [the Stags’ chief executive] offered me this opportunity, I didn’t need asking twice.

“Mansfield are my home town club and I don’t think there is anything better than having Greene King IPA on the front of that wonderful amber shirt.

“Mansfield is an area in which we want to grow our brand. We know that Mansfield people like decent beer because they grew up drinking good beer.

Unfortunately, their own brand has been tarnished over the past few years but I’m hoping IPA can take their place.”

Stags chairman John Radford said: “It’s important that the club has a good main sponsor and I believe Greene King will be a solid sponsor for us.  We thank them for their sponsorship for the forthcoming season and hope to form an even closer relationship with them.

“We’ve just had the first batch of kits through and they’ll be available to buy almost straight away.”

The new kit has already proved a big hit with the club’s players. Captain Adam Murray told the club’s official website www.mansfieldtown.net: “It’s a great design.  The sponsor’s logo takes up a good area of the shirt which is good for them.”

Adam Smith agreed, saying:  “It’s nice and light. You feel mobile in it. It’s a change from last season’s but I prefer it.”

The new home shirt is priced at £39.99 for adults, with shorts retailing at £15.95 and socks at just £8.95. Junior kit is priced at £34.99 for a home short, £12.95 for shorts and only £6.95 for socks. To place your order call the Stags on 01623 482 482.
