The Design

Calderdale Club Kit was designed by Colin Chapman, who described it thus:

Firstly, maintaining the Blue/Yellow theme of the Club colours, I have incorporated them into a modern design suitable for the 21st Century.

I have also introduced strategic White panelling to break up & soften the harsh contrasts of the Blue/Yellow blocks. Whilst the Yellow gives bright visibility during daylight hours, introduction of the White panels enhances low light visibility as an added safety feature!

Although a modern design, I have also acknowledged the traditions of the CTC by the introduction of “Winged Wheel” motifs to both shoulders & have also added subtle , tasteful “Yorkshire White Roses”, front & rear in recognition of our County roots. The chest banding also allows clear display of the Section branding, which, by spacing at two levels, reduces the script height resulting in a slightly smaller but neater banner.
