Reds To Keep Current Crest

Monday January 20 2014

THE long-running saga of changing the Reds' club crest has come to an end after it was announced that the badge will not be changing.

Three new designs were put to supporters last year as part of a proposed 'brand refresh' introduced by chief executive Ben Mansford.

A club statement said: "The overall results highlighted that nearly 80 per cent opted for a new design, but the voting finished equal between option D and the existing crest.

"Although there's been a clear vote for a change, the margin between the top two was so narrow that the club felt it would be appropriate to stick with the current crest." 

A good choice? Have your say below.

It makes sense to keep the current badge as it's the town's coat of arms showing the tradition of mining and glassmaking. The badges that were suggested looked basic anyway.

The new badge should have been an image of scaffolding to symbolise the reds holding the rest of the league up.

Thats the right thing to do why change it this badge shows the past heritage of a town to be proud of. If we change anything why not go back to the clubs original nickname? The Colliers or have people forgotten "we are the Colliers"

Right decision. Now let's start our next project and replace BMBC Labour Party from Local Goverment.
