Uniform History

2011 Uniform (Sarah Gorton) A new uniform was introduced in 2011, with different fabric allowing players to remain cooler during matches. The colors chosen were emerald green sides to represent the club's original color and maroon front and back representing the clubs key color. Black arms and neck collars are included. Shorts or Skirts included the same color code. Socks are maroon with Emerald green stripes on the side. Yellow socks (Part of the Yellow 86 theme) were chosen for any color clashes.

The Club's First Training top was introduced in 2014.

In 2015, a new club logo was commissioned to incorporate the colours of the new uniforms.

2003 Uniform as modelled by David and Colleen Downs From the 2003 winter season the club continued to use Attack Sports as supplier, but the uniform was in a different cut to allow greater shoulder movement, with trims and a strip down the shorts for greater contrast.

Socks remained black with a maroon turnover.

1999 Uniform as modelled by Debbie and Colleen  (10740 Bytes) In 1999 the club switched suppliers, and restocked in a maroon top in Jacquard fabric with an embossed pattern. The black trim on the neck and armbands provided a slight contrast, and a new club logo was embroided on the chest. The shorts were plain black in a matching fabric style, and black socks with maroon turnover.

A logo that was capable of being embroided onto uniforms was needed, and was designed by David Downs.

In 1992, an addition to the club logo was made. Drawn especially for the club by renowned Herald-Sun cartoonist Jeff Hook (with his trademark hook hidden in the logo), the new logo was supposed to be for the junior division, but it proved so popular that it was adopted across the whole club.

Yellow and Navy blue uniform, modelled by Janice Reardon (13748 Bytes) In August 1986, the uniform became 'bone' with royal blue trim and blue shorts/skits and socks. Over the years, 'bone' became yellow, (then 'canary yellow!') and the navy trim was dropped for simplicity and cheapness. The socks eventually evolved into yellow with navy blue turnover.

Here we see a later edition of the uniform modelled by Janice Reardon (nee Mendes)

Below is the club logo of the period, here shown on a cloth badge.
