Dewsbury Rams will revert to their traditional red, amber and black hooped shirts as their home strip for next season.

Pictures of the new home and away kit designs were unveiled at Wednesday night’s fans forum.

Over 50 supporters submitted designs for the new kits after the Rams ran a competition.

Replica kit sales provide an important source of income for the club and Rams chairman Mark Sawyer is hoping the return to traditional colours will prove popular with supporters, especially in the run up to Christmas.

Young fan Thomas Roberts won the design for the home strip, while long standing supporter Kevin Whittaker designed the away strip, which is similar to one worn by the team in the early 2000s, which is blue, white and green hoops.

Supporters group the Amber Ribbon are looking for new ways to raise money for the club and their chairman Charlie Coates addressed the Fans Forum outlining plans for a new fundraising scheme, similar to Batley Bulldogs War Chest, where supporters pledge money each time the team wins.

Money raised would go directly towards helping fund the players win bonuses and final details will be released soon.
