Waving goodbye to this…
Club director Alex Petheram said, as quoted by GloucestershireLive: “The logo and kit colour change was already a topic of discussion well before my time at Gloucester City.
“On a personal note, my Dad and grandfather for example have both watched Gloucester City play in red and from talking to current fans I’ve heard their reasons for why they wanted to stay in the current yellow of Westbury Homes, as they brought in the yellow when they sponsored the club back in the 80’s with the clubs move to Meadow Park.
“A meeting was called with attendance from the supporters trust, sponsors, future sponsors, the ladies, youth section, first team management and main board shareholders.
“A number of badges were looked at along with kit options.
“The ladies section were the first to incorporate the new colours this current season.
“I can confirm that next season, for the first time, the club as a whole will have one official kit supplier and official badge.
“Raging Bull will be announced as a main sponsor and official kit supplier, designed in Gloucester, by Gloucester people for our Gloucester club.”
The club are currently playing their football at Evesham United but are to build a new 3,060 capacity stadium, raised by several feet, on the site of their former home of Meadow Park with plans to expand to over 4,000.
