Northampton Saints have vowed to ‘Take the Town’ with them when they travel away from home this season after launching their Macron change strip for the 2018/19 season.
The squad will trade the Black, Green and Gold for a traditional Northampton Maroon on away days this season, representing the Club on the road in the famous colour of the Town and County.
And with so many of the current squad born and raised in Northamptonshire, some of Saints’ home-grown heroes insist that the significance of the kit’s colour will not be lost when they run out on away soil this term.
“The people of Northampton give us so much support,” said Saints’ new Club co-captain Alex Waller. “It will be great to represent them on the road in the town’s colours.”
Wing Tom Collins added: “I really like the idea behind using maroon in the jersey, and the subtle Black, Green and Gold touches look really smart.”
“It’s bold, it’s different and I really like it. If it helps us feel like we’re taking the support we get from this town with us, then all the better.”James Grayson
The new kit, designed and produced by Italian manufacturer Macron, was created using the latest technology available to provide Northampton’s squad with the utmost freedom of movement whilst they play, and keep moisture away from the body to keep Saints cool on the pitch.
As well as the elite playing jersey worn by the Saints matchday squad, a supporter version of the kit is also available from the Saints Store, with replica jerseys starting at £60 for adults and £45 for juniors.
Northampton Saints 2018/19 away kit is on sale NOW and available from the Saints Store. The squad will be wearing the kit at today’s open training session and supporters can purchase it immediately afterwards.
The Club’s 2018/19 home and training kit launched last and is also available online and in the Club store.
