The good news is these will be on sale in the club shop On Saturday from 10.30 till around 5.

The bad news is the Adidas shirts are £35 each for Junior sizes and £45 each for adult sizes.

Sorry I cannot provide a photo as I have not seen them but I understand a photo is on the club twitting site. If you have any questions I will do my best to answer but wont be able to do so until Tuesday.

£45!!! For what is essentially just a different brand on the front!

This is Welling United not Man Utd...

Disappointed when I saw the price, however after seeing them in the shop they are really nice. Very good quality and I will certainly be getting one for me and my son!

Thinking about this, it would be nice to go back shirt style changes every two years - I'm sure that is how it was when I was a kid! Certainly wouldn't feel so bad paying that sort of money.

Hardly any club these days changes kits every 2 years. I agree with you it should be like that but that'a a thing of the past unfortunately. £45 is pricey - surely would have been better to go with a smaller brand name who charges less. A non league team shirt should not be about a fiver less than a premier league team one, makes no sense.

I agree - obviously could have been cheaper with Macron or something else. That said, don't forget there's no purchasing power with Welling, not exactly buying thousands so unfortunately they're always going to seem expensive, whether £35 or £45.

A couple of points regarding your comments.

£45 is a lot but it is true if we had the buying power of Manchester United we could knock them out for about £30 and not the £60 they charge. In fact this seasons shirts have cost us £8 more each but we felt it too much to expect our fans to pay this so the club and WUSA are making a little less than last season. Of course WUSA members will still get their 10% discount. 

I saw the Nike catalogue for last season and all the listed shirts were only available until March this year. It is the manufacturers  that change the design so they can extort clubs throughout the country. 

Last season we managed to get some special buys in by trawling the net and driving to far flung places like Orpington and Ashford. We have already started this ready for the new season and have t shirts on order which will be badged up and available at reasonable cost to fans.

Does anyone know what time the club shop opens tomorrow? Was just wondering if this was when gates opened or whether it was earlier because of the team photo opportunity taking place. Cheers.

Hang on

Rondos will be buying and selling hundreds of kits from 6 to 16s and also  the  senior academy teams. Just as Macron used to sell hundreds of Welling United kits to all age ranges in the youth teams under Jim Dean. The kit is now Adidas because Rondos have been using Adidas already selling hundreds of kits and training wear etc, In theory the club should be able to sell at a decent price given the buying power is clearly there. Its not like they are ordering and selling 100 kits to fans and thats it. Adidas will be doing a shed load of buisiness with "Welling United" this season going into 100s of kits plus all the training gear for all age ranges.
