Worksop Town have unveiled their new Lee Westwood sponsored kits for the 2014/15 season.

Tigers begin life in the NCEL Premier on Saturday, and the new era will be marked with a new look.

The Nike kits will both carry the logo of Lee Westwood’s Golf Academy, with Rainbow People Ltd and Online Construction of Anstonsponsoring the back of the shirts.

Boss Mark Shaw hopes that the kit, and its price tag, will be attractive enough to send sales soaring.

“I’m really pleased with how it looks,” he said.

“We’ve already had about 55 pre-order shirt sales and I’m hoping we’ll see a lot more Tigers shirts around town on kids and teenagers.”

Kids shirts will be priced at £24, with tracksuits available at £25 for children and £35 for adults.

Worksop Town take to the field in their new colours for the first time at Armthorpe Welfare on Saturday.
