On Wednesday afternoon Oxford United in the Community visited Rose Hill Primary School to model the new staff training kit for the 2017/18 season.
With preparations well underway for the new season, with the first team back in training and the women’s team back in early August, Oxford United have produced a new training kit. Not only do the players get to show off their new kit this year but the new training wear will be worn by all staff across the men’s, women’s and community teams.
The Community Department staff went to Rose Hill Primary School on Wednesday and showcased the new kit to their two Year 5 classes, who were extremely enthusiastic about the launch. Chris Lowes, Joe Long, Ross Layton and Harry Symonds, coaches from the Community Department, all took the time to take a session with the classes and hold a Q&A session.
We spoke to some of the boys and girls at the school and their views on the new training wear included comments such as: ‘It’s really cool and a lot better than last year’s kit’ and ‘I think the colours are a lot better’.
Claire Theobald, Head of Retail, commented: “We have changed both the staff and training wear for the 2017/18 season. The grey staff kit that the coaches are wearing has been specifically made with their coaching needs in mind for all weather requirements. The same goes for the navy training wear, specifically designed for the players, with tapered tops, fitted skinny track bottoms and comfortable travelling hoodies, to mention just a few of the items we have in stock. The training wear that is on sale in the store is exactly the same range that the players are training in now.”
