WARRINGTON Town's limited edition shirt commemorating the club's 70th anniversary has sold out.

Only 70 shirts were put up for sale and all of them have been snapped up within 48 hours.

The maroon and light blue quartered shirts have been made by the club’s kit partners Macron, and are a nod to the heritage of the club, founded by Jimmy Drinkwater as Stockton Heath back in 1949.

The shirt has no sponsor marks, save for the Macron manufacturer logo, along with an embroidered club logo and 70th anniversary message. The limited edition shirts are individually numbered from 1 to 70.

The club’s most famous son, England World Cup winner Roger Hunt, has signed one of the limited edition shirts which will be displayed proudly in the boardroom at Cantilever Park.

Chairman Toby Macormac said: “We are delighted to commemorate the 70th anniversary season of the club with these limited edition shirts, and we are having conversations about whether to wear them as a one-off in a league game later in the season.

“As the club attempts to reach highs it has never seen before, it is important to remember the officials, players and fans that have supported the many ups and downs experienced in 70 years.

“We are fortunate that in the past five years, we have experienced many fantastic highs that will stand out in the club’s history for years to come.

“We encourage fans, especially from yesteryear, to share any memories and memorabilia they have with the club so that they can be documented and create an even better picture of the Yellows’ past.”

Former striker Hunt played for the then Stockton Heath side before making his name at Liverpool, where he would win three league titles and the FA Cup in more than 400 appearances.
