New kit deal boost for the Robins
Football: Ilkeston FC, of the Evo-Stik Premier Division, have confirmed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Irish firm O'Neills to handle not only their kit but also an exciting new range of branded leisurewear.
The current playing kit will remain unchanged for the rest of this season but new Ilkeston FC leisurewear is already available on-line and will be on sale from the club shop from December 14.
Robins chairman Dave Mantle said: "We are keen to provide the best possible service to our supporters and believe the new deal will significantly improve and extend our offering.
"We've been delighted since the birth of the club with the amount of sales of kit and merchandise but this season in particular, we haven't always been able to satisfy demand as quickly and efficiently as we would have liked.
