Check your size against the Force GB sizing guide. Sizes are a bit on the tight side, and most people have found that they need to order the next size up. Orders cannot be returned if the size is wrong because they are made to order, so make sure you order the correct size. Try on another club member’s kit, or visit the Force GB factory at Victoria Mills, Knowler Hill, Liversedge, West Yorkshire, WF15 6DP, tel: 01924 409290, where they have samples.
A Note on Zip Length
Zips are shorter than the description suggests: the short zip = 10 cm long, the 3/4 zip is more like 1/2 = 25 cm long.
The full zip is as the name suggests!
You can buy individual items direct from them by visiting their Club Shop. There’s usually about a 4 week delivery time and it is posted out to you.
If we can get sufficient orders together (6 – 10) the club can put in a bulk order. Cost of kit in a bulk order are approximately 20% less than individual orders.
Contact Dave Dodwell email@example.com if you would like to be added to the next bulk order.
Payment needs to be made before order. You can pay Dave Dodwell by PayPal (choose the ‘friends or family’ option when paying), by Bank transfer (email Dave for bank details), or by cheque.

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.
