Today we’ve delivered in these outstanding heritage garments for Superleague team Huddersfield Giants, exclusively available from the club store and online.
The inspiration for the design of this Polo shirt has been taken from the Challenge Cup Final that took place in 1933. The thirty-third Challenge Cup Final held at Wembley was played between Huddersfield and Warrington on the 6th May 1933. A record crowd saw Huddersfield emerging 21-17 winners and lifting the trophy for a record fourth time. The team wore a claret jersey with a Gold ‘v’ a design synonymous with the game of Rugby League.
The zipper features our interpretation of the traditional Huddersfield Rugby League Crest from 1953 as a stylish applique. It was St Helens who went into the 1953 final as strong favourites but Huddersfield, inspired by 19-year-old full-back Peter Ramsden, pulled off a shock 15-10 victory.
This is a great example of our approach to garment design, taking the rich heritage of a great club like Huddersfield and developing a high quality clothing range that appeals to fans and celebrates the great achievements of the past players.
