On Tuesday this week Dorking Wanderers will be launching their new replica kits for the 2023-24 season, which will give supporters the opportunity to order in advance so they are in receipt before the new season gets underway. As in previous seasons the club will be launching 3 new kits with the support of their official kit supplier Macron Hastings, consisting of home, away and third strips in both adult and junior sizes.
The club has proudly had Dorking based Stonegate Homes as their main sponsor since 2017, and this long-term partnership still has several years to run. However, Stonegate have very kindly offered to relinquish sponsorship of the official club shirts for one season to allow the club to raise additional funds to support their Grade 1 stadium enhancement works, which were a prerequisite of promotion to the National League following the play-off final victory in May 2022.
“The support shown by Jerry and the team from Stonegate Homes since we started this partnership has been nothing short of first class, and this is yet another example of where they have kindly offered to support the club as we continue on our non-league journey off the field”.
“The ground expansion works came only a short time after we completed the ground grading project following our promotion to the National League South, and the associated costs were significant given the requirements associated with adding an additional 1000 to our ground capacity. Stonegate were quick to acknowledge this, and as a true community partner were very quick to offer their support, hence the relinquishing of this key asset so the club could generate additional income to support the completion of this time sensitive project”.
Dorking Wanderers Executive Director, Kris Lea, added:
“Stonegate Homes Managing Director Jerry Hinds, along with his team, have played a pivotal part in the clubs record breaking success in recent years, frequently offering advice and support when needed. I’m proud to call Jerry a close friend of the club, as well as an avid supporter of the team, and would like to thank both him and his colleagues for this very kind gesture”.
Stonegate Homes Managing Director, Jerry Hinds, commented:
“We are proud of our association with Dorking Wanderers and we’re happy to offer support with the bigger picture in mind. Ultimately we’re long term partners and we want to ensure that the club continues to thrive, so we were more than happy to play our part to ensure that this seasons off the field objectives can be met as the club continues on its exciting journey”.
The club will be launching their new replica kit range at midday on Tuesday 28th March.
