STEEPED in history, senior side Corton Football Club are continuing to aim high.

But for all their recent success, and ongoing growth, in more than 100 years the club are still without a club badge.

So today, a call is going out to local people and readers of The Journal as a competition is being run for an individual to design a club badge.

“Despite being established for over 100 years, Corton FC are still without a club badge and are hoping local people and readers of The Journal can help change that,” a club spokesman said.

Corton, who currently play their home games on Corton playing field, have three teams playing in different leagues on Saturdays and a veterans team on Sundays.

The Saturday first team are currently well positioned in the Anglian Combination Division One, the reserves are in Anglian Combination Division Six and the A team play in the Lowestoft and District League Division Two. The veterans are represented in the Anglia Access Veterans League Division 3 (Central).

“Corton FC are calling on all local people and supporters to design a club badge to be proudly displayed on their shirts,” the spokesman said. “The design of the badge, which will feature on next year's club shirt and for generations to come, is entirely up to the individual but ideally should include something that represents Corton Village and its proud football team.

“The team's colours of black and white must also be incorporated in the design.”

This competition is open to everyone of all ages, regardless of your drawing ability and the winning design will be invited to have their picture with players and representatives from the club and be presented with a £10 gift voucher of their choice. The deadline for entries is Tuesday, March 31. A shortlist will be drawn up by the club's committee in April with the winner to be announced shortly after.

Please ensure all entries include a contact name, address, telephone number and your age. All entries should be sent to: Ryan Holt, 6 Church Lane, Corton, Lowestoft, NR32 5HU or via e-mail to view@ryanholt.co.uk
