CHANGE is nothing new at Newmains this season.
There have been fresh faces, a fresh management team and the formation of a media academy.
For the past few weeks United have been playing in their brand new navy blue away kit too.
Made by Joma, the shirt is sponsored by Ferguson’s on the front and I-scaff Access Solutions on the back.
It follows on from the popular home jersey, which boasts curry dishes sold at sponsors The Pink Turban Indian restaurant as squad names.
Winger Cammy Browning reckons it’s left the players determined to look the part in it when the first whistle blows.
He said: “I love the away kit – it’s quality. It fits really well and that really makes a difference.
“You can go to some clubs and you will have kits which are three or four sizes too big for you.
“The tops will be hanging off you and you feel like a wee guy. It makes it really good to play in comfortable gear.
“Everybody knows who the club is now and who they are playing for. We have been doing our best to change the perception of Newmains.
“We have a good group of boys here so hopefully we can continue to do that and make people proud to pull on the home and away strips.”
Newmains United host East Kilbride in the second round of the Ardagh Group West of Scotland Cup this Saturday at Victoria Park.
Kick-off is 1.30pm and tickets cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for Under-16s/OAPs.
