Hundreds attend Away kit launch!

A hot summer's day made it the perfect occasion on which to launch our new Away kit for the 2009-10 season on Saturday.

Over a thousand turned up to The Lane for a fun-filled afternoon as fans got the chance to get their hands on the dark blue strip the day before the team wore it for the first time against Olympiacos on Sunday.

There were a number of attractions on show outside the stadium's West Stand, including inflatable football activities, face painting, and exhibitions from football freestyler Billy Wingrove.

Fans also had the opportunity to take a tour of the players' tunnel and home dressing room, before a pitchside photo opportunity.

But no doubt the highlight of the day for many was the chance to meet Jermain Defoe, Ledley King and Aaron Lennon, who attended to take part in a two-hour signing session for everybody who purchased the new Away kit.

Here is a selection of pictures from the day...

There were also a number of prizes given away on the day via a raffle, and the lucky person with ticket number 0648 is yet to claim their prize. Please call us on 020 8365 5113 to claim!

Congratulations to all other competition winners.
