Mansfield Town has revealed the new home and away kits which will grace the Football League next season.

The club has also announced that One Call Insurance will be the new shirt sponsor for the 2013-14 campaign - its first in the Football League for five years.

Surridge Sports has manufactured the new strip - with the home shirt being predominately amber with a blue round-neck collar and cuffs, while blue shorts and amber socks complete the look of the new kit.

Blue shirts, amber shorts, and blue socks are the colours of the way kit.

Stags’ players Paul Black, Anthony Howell, Junior Daniel, Ben Hutchinson and Louis Briscoe revealed the strip at One Call Stadium on Friday afternoon.

Joint operations directors Paul and Tina Broughton said: “We wanted something clean-looking with a retro feel for the home shirt.

“We are very fortunate to have One Call as our shirt sponsors, whose investment will aid our continued progress.”

Nick Springthorpe, managing director at One Call Insurance, said it was an exciting time to develop even closer links with Mansfield Town, particularly after the club’s title-winning season.

“There are a number of attractive fixtures for the Stags next season at One Call Stadium, where we will look to entertain our corporate clients,” he said.

“We look forward to a successful season for both the Stags and One Call Insurance.”

Surridge will supply all the Stags’ playing and technical wear to players and staff for the next three seasons.

Said regional sales manager, Danny Vilia: “I am delighted have Mansfield Town on board, adding to our growing presence in the professional football market. Their passion to succeed is evident from dealing with the staff at the club and makes it even more exciting to be part of their new chapter.

“Our recent investment in UK manufacturing is a giant step forward for the brand and enables us to produce playing kits in just three weeks. This is something that Mansfield Town were very keen on utilising as it allows a constant supply to the fans.”

The Stags’ commercial manager Paul Nyland said the club was looking forward to working with Surridge, a UK-based company which has a track record in manufacturing sportswear for professional clubs.

“As well as the quality of the new merchandise, the deal will also mean that the club will be able to sell shirts, as well as leisurewear, much quicker than ever before,” he said.

“We will also work with Surridge in the local community to further promote the well-established brands of Surridge and Mansfield Town Football Club.”

Chairman John Radford confirmed on Thursday at a fans’ forum that the Stags would be playing in the new kit for the next two seasons.

The Stags will wear the new strip for the first time when they play a friendly in Malta against Naxxar Lions on 6th July.
