Canterbury, a kit manufacturer renowned in the rugby world have agreed a long term agreement with Pompey to manufacture our kits - this arrangement will begin for the 07-08 season onwards. Other than the Canterbury designed scrum-cap Chelsea keeper Petr Cech wears, this is the first time a rugby brand has ventured into the world of football and is another exciting development for the club.
Athletes usually wear those 'BaseLayer vest' these days and our shirts will be combined with these. We will have to wait another month or so until the design is released but the technology featured within the shirt is said to make our new kit something special, Pompey chief exec Peter Storrie said.
"The kit that Canterbury is providing the club will be the most technically advanced in the Premiership."
This move is yet another example of the progress we are looking to make both on and off the pitch, it may not sound much but seeing the words 'Pompey' and 'advanced' in the same billing is music to my ears. As much as I may have liked us producing our own kit it is about time that we had a decent manufacturer again, hopefully Canterbury will prove just that.
Rugby has ventured into football before in the shape of a few physio's down the years but most famously when Sir Clive Woodwood took up a post with our 'friends' down the road, let us just hope this rugby to football crossover venture of ours is better than his!
Also, another off the field development will see John Keeley join the Pompey coaching staff in July. Keeley played in goal for Brighton between 1986 and 1990 and will leave his position as Brighton goalkeeping coach - having returned to Albion in 2001, to take up a role as Academy goalkeeping coach with Pompey.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
