Buckley Town Football Club, the largest community football club in Wales outside Cardiff, has signed a new kit deal with TAG Sportswear Ltd based in Staffordshire. The new deal will see TAG Sportswear provide playing/training kit and leisurewear to over 400 players and coaches for at least the next three years.
Buckley Town FC Kit Officer, Richard Hogg said “We started the process last year as we wanted to make sure we had time to look at all the available options. With a new club badge on the way and having been with our previous supplier for over ten years, we felt there was a duty to test the market.”
The Club adopted a quality-led procurement process where the price was the last item to be assessed. Ten suppliers were invited to submit proposals, and from a subsequent shortlist of three, TAG Sportswear Ltd offered the best combination of quality and price.
The Club is now working closely with TAG Sportswear to get everything ready for next season. As Tony Footitt from TAG Sportswear Ltd explained, “The design we have come up with for Buckley Town Football Club is unique, and while there is a perception that bespoke designs are costly, with Buckley this wasn’t the case as we were awarded the contract on both quality and price. We’re excited to be working with Buckley Town Football Club as this is our first major club in north Wales”.
Dan Moore, First Team Manager, Buckley Town Football Club, is delighted to be sharing some good news. “Despite the effects of the pandemic, it’s been a really busy time at the Club. We merged our Junior and Senior sections, giving a development path from the U5 mini-kickers through to the Senior First Team, we’ve announced a major commitment to grow the female game within the Club, with the help of our local community we now have a brand-new Club logo, and we’re revealing this spectacular new kit which will be worn across the whole Club. There’s lots of doom and gloom around at the moment, so having an exciting new kit to look forward to is a real boost for everyone involved with the Club. It’s another big step forward for Buckley Town Football Club.”
Work is already underway to secure sponsorship for the next three years under the ‘Back the Bucks’ campaign. There are numerous sponsorship opportunities available and any organisation interested in working with Buckley Town Football Club should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
