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.

So it's Umbro (Ireland) after all. Another marketing opportunity missed that feels like.

Better be decent gear and not the generic stuff they gave Pats and Limerick this season. The training gear range for all the clubs is identical with just the crests changed. The euro special shirt they did in 2015 was nice in fairness, as was the black away one.

Any stripes on the home shirt and there's going to be violence.

Has there been official confirmation somewhere, cant see anything online from neither party?

Not official but apparently it's in the Argus. I had also been told Umbro back around the time of the Slovan match. But I don't peddle rumours!!

Someone on Twitter made a good point about the supply issues last tome we had umbro. Hopefully the club isn’t let down for the Christmas market.

Dunno if Umbro Ireland use the same templates as umbro in the UK. Really hope we're not posting here in November about how they have screwed the Christmas market on us...

Anyway, are there any of their Premier League kits anyone likes?:

https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/foo ... 61996.html

For me they're all pretty dull. The white West Ham away one with the striped v-neck is about the best - black where the blue is and red where the claret is? All three Everton kits would make pretty nice away kits for us.

Wonder if we could get the Fyffes name in blue font as opposed to the big oval with the white font

Drogheda shirt announced by Umbro. Nice and clean so high hopes for ours. Saw a tweet yesterday about the training gear being the same for every club, including colour. So less confident there.

While quality, design and price are important, the irony is that supply issues are probably more important to the club than anything else

The new Shels one they produced is an absolute cracker simplistic in design here’s hoping we can get something similar
