Corton FC unveil new kit and logo

PUBLISHED: 10:26 17 September 2010

WEARING their new kit with “pride” – Corton Football Club are pictured with a newly-designed logo and club badge, which has finally been unveiled.

After an appeal in The Journal urging locals to submit their ideas for a club badge several months ago, the club “proudly presented their new badge” and new first team kit on Saturday, prior to their home Mummery Cup victory at Corton Playing Field.

And thanks to support from Corton based design and print agency Emagma, the club look resplendent in their new kit.

Corton, who boast two teams in the Anglian Combination leagues and another in the Lowestoft and District League, recently teamed up with Emagma to design the new badge.

And proving to be a great success, the badge incorporates local heritage and landmarks such as the sun rising in the east, the ripples of the north sea and the Old Corton Mill.

The new badge has now been printed on to the club’s first team shirts thanks to sponsorship from the Ole Frank Public House – and the team marked the prestigious first time in their new strip with a convincing 4-0 home victory over Hindringham in the cup. Ryan Holt, managing director for Emagma, said: “We supported Corton FC, as it’s part of our ethics as a business to support community events and organisations, in helping them and their development with marketing and brand awareness.”

Bryan Rawstron, club chairman, said: “We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received from Emagma.

“The club has been established for just over 100 years and it is about time we had a club badge we are proud of and can wear for future generations.

“We would also like to thank the Ole Frank Public House for their continued support and sponsorship,” he added.

The club have also had car stickers printed with the new badge and welcome current and new supporters to all home games for each of the teams, which take place Saturday afternoons at the Corton playing field.
