2021/22 Kit Launch

2021/22 Kit Launch

The new era of community ownership comes with two new exciting strips for the upcoming season.

New signing, Gozie Ugwu, and Michael Ledger were on hand at Cappielow to launch the new kits today with new main shirt sponsors for the next two seasons, McGill's.

Local businessmen Sandy and James Easdale will be supporting the club as main commercial sponsors for the next two seasons via four of the businesses in their Arranglen group of companies.

As a tribute to the centenary of the club’s Scottish Cup win, and to mark the beginning of a new era for the club, the new retro home shirt has been sponsored by McGill’s but will have no sponsor logos on the front or back.

The sponsorless element of the home shirt is two-fold. Without a sponsor, the shirt has a truly retro feel to it as a tribute to the centenary 1922 Scottish Cup winning strip.

Having the shirt without any sponsor logos on the front or back also marks the beginning of a new era for the club under community ownership. As a tribute to the fan ownership element, the shirt focuses on the club and its history ensuring this unique strip belongs to the fans.

The new third kit has gone down very well with fans across social media so far too, with the McGill's logo front and centre in the striking yellow stripe.

Both new kits were designed by Morton fan and MCT member, Gavin MacIntosh. We were delighted that he was able to make it to Cappielow today too to see his concepts become reality.

Morton Club Together Director Graham Barr said, “We are absolutely delighted to get this sponsorship deal agreed and would like to say a massive thank you to Sandy and James for their continuing support of the club.

“This will be a memorable shirt for the club and fans that will not only celebrate Morton’s history, but also mark the beginning of a new era.”

Sandy Easdale said, “The club is heading into a new era but we’re delighted to be continuing our support of Greenock Morton.

“We’ve supported the youth set-up and stadium advertising in recent years, and we’re pleased to add shirt sponsorship for the next two years."

James Easdale added, “Morton plays a huge role in Greenock and surrounding communities and we want to continue offering our backing for that."

The new strips will be available to pre-order from Smiths at 9am tomorrow (Tuesday 29th June). Due to the timing of the final agreement of the community ownership deal and shipping delays due to Covid-19, the delivery of these strips will be slightly delayed, but it is hoped by Smiths that all strips will be available to collect in the second half of August. We will keep fans and everyone who pre-orders updated on expected delivery dates.
