Workington Town have unveiled their new away kit for the 2019 season – and it has a real Cumbrian flavour.

The new shirt is based on the traditional Cumbrian flag and is the idea of young Town fan Jack Rudd.

Town held a competition to design the away kit and had a great response with over 700 children entering, from over 35 schools.

But the winning design was from eight-year-old Jack and the club jumped at the chance to claim their pride in the county.

“The competition was a massive success with a tremendous number of great quality entries,” said director Barry White.

“Jack’s design was one of the strongest visually but we also shortlisted it because his design reason ‘that he was proud to be from Cumbria’ resonated with us as a club.

“Although our support base is West Cumbria, we do have supporters from across the county and we want to grow numbers.

“Cumbria has a strong rugby league heritage at professional and community club level and we can now celebrate that by wearing our county flag on our away travels. Everyone involved in rugby league is working hard to grow the game and there is a growing positivity within the Cumbrian game at this time.

“We hope that this fantastic design by a young and passionate supporter will be appreciated and is well supported.”

Jack won a jersey, a season ticket and a signed rugby ball. He’ll be visited by a player to show him his design once manufactured.
