D&B Scaffolding & Cloudfm Onboard for the New Championship Season


The new Specsavers County Championship shirt has landed and will be proudly worn by the squad for the 2019/20 seasons.

The colour red is engrained in the Club’s heritage and appears on the sleeves and placket of the new shirt design to complement the ivory. The famous seaxes appear throughout the new shirt, featuring on the shirt reverse alongside the player’s name and number.

The front includes our front of shirt sponsor, D&B Scaffolding, who continue their long-standing relationship with the Club, feature for the fourth consecutive season.
