General Manager Deny Wilson was delighted to release the new designs ahead of the club’s first competitive game at Hartsdown Park in the Emirates FA Cup on Tuesday.

“After a lot of hard work behind the scenes and managing the difficult circumstances of Covid, I am thrilled to be able to share our designs and begin selling our unique new home, away and goalkeeper kits.”

“Luke has done a fantastic job is designing four incredible shirts that reflect our twist on The Libertines’ style. We hope the shirt is something something our supporters will enjoy wearing with pride alongside fans of the band worldwide.”

It was in 2018 that indie rock band The Libertines joined forces with the club, having their logo emblazoned across the front of the shirt.

Margate FC’s at the time general manager Deny Wilson said he was “thrilled” by the “pioneering partnership”.

He said: “We’ve got a series of exciting things lined up and truly believe we can work together to help showcase Margate to as large an audience as possible.”

Interestingly, they are not the first band to sponsor a football team as Super Furry Animals sponsored Cardiff City’s shirts for the club’s matches in the FAW Cup in 1999.

The logo of Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods was placed on south Wales under-nines team The Seven Sisters AFC’s shirts last year.

The record label owned by Fatboy Slim (real name Norman Cook) Skint Records was the main shirt sponsor of the DJ’s much loved side Brighton and Hove Albion for nine years.

In 1993, Scottish group Wet Wet Wet sponsored their local team Clydebank FC.

And rappers Goldie Lookin’ Chain sponsored their hometown club Newport County in 2004.
