CX sports to be wound up
That's bad news, primarily for its staff.

It seems that it will be an orderly close by the end of the year with all commitments honoured in the meantime

Hate to hear any business go under. Sad for all involved.

I had wondered would we see a new shirt for Europe. Presume not now. Was reading a piece not long ago about how there are no bespoke designs any more with the big manufacturers. Would be great to get a nice clean white with black trim and maybe even promote it in the hipster market in the States!

I must look it up and find the name, but there is a new sportswear start-up company in Dundalk in the last 12 months. It would be great for them to raise their profile as our kit providers, they are local business to support and they probably could come up with a bespoke design also. Manufacturing of their stuff isnt local iirc but then neither would the larger providers have manufacturing in Ireland either.

*Defy Sports in the regional development centre. Maybe its a long shot but worth a look to see if they could be an option.

Agreed, it'd be great to at least get them in for a conversation. CX+ Sports was a great match, they supplied excellent quality gear with great design. I guess the margins just weren't there to make it viable. Pity.

Their gear is terrible - wouldn't be up to scratch at all.

The girls u16s and Ladies teams trialled CX Sport kits for a full season before the deal was done. By all accounts there were a number of recommendations before the first team took it on. "Defy" may be in a position to make changes to the manufacturing process - or they may just be an agent.
