Meanwhile, following on from the unveiling of a brand-new club crest, the Eagles have also revealed their shirts for the 2020 season.

Working in collaboration with O’Neills Sportswear, the 2020 home kit sees a return of a predominantly red kit, white secondary and with flashes of the club’s historic gold colouring.

The away is yellow-gold with black detailing on the upper chest along with black strikes on the sleeve and down chest sides.

Last season’s principal partner, GRI Group, have again signed up for 2020 with the club also confirming a special edition kit to be released next year.
