Dewsbury Rams have unveiled their new home (left) and away (right) kits for the 2016 season.

Dewsbury Rams centre Shane Grady has turned down a substantial offer from a rival club to honour his contract at Tetley’s Stadium.

Rams head coach Glenn Morrison revealed Grady’s impressive form had attracted interest from several clubs despite him signing a contract to remain at Dewsbury until the end of 2016.

Grady has scored 24 tries and kicked five goals in 48 appearances since joining in 2014 and Morrison is pleased he will remain at Ram.

Morrison said: “Shane is staying at the club, after having knocked back an offer of more money from another club and we are pleased to keep a player of his calibre on board and part of our plans for the season ahead.”

Dewsbury have also unveiled their new home and away playing strips, which will be available for supporters to buy before Christmas.

The home shirt is predominantly black, with red and amber flashes, in keeping with the club’s traditional colours.

The shirt includes both the Dewsbury coat of arms and the Rams logo, along with those of main shirt sponsors Yorkshire Building Services and associate sponsors James Wilby Builders Merchants, Harron Homes, Key Security and Flair Handling Systems.

The Rams will also continue their support of Try Assist, which is the new name for the RFL Benevolent Fund, whose logo also appears on the front of both shirts.

Shirt designer 6TK director Adam Drake said: “A lot of work has gone into both kit designs following briefs from the club and coach Glenn Morrison.

“Every new shirt needs to feel connected to the club and its history whilst still looking to the future and giving fans something new to add to their collection.”

Both replica shirts are available to pre-order at www.dewsburyrams.co.uk.
