Bedford Town Football Club have confirmed a new agreement with a kit supplier for the new season, and have revealed their new home shirt.

The club have reached an agreement with Evolve SSP, a new company based in Kempston, run by Bedfordian Luke Hyde, and will use the kit for the new 2020/21 season after the current season was voided due the coronavirus pandemic.

The club also revealed that they will use an Adidas kit for the first time, with Storey Homes continuing to be their main home first team sponsors. Evolve SSP and Adidas will also supply the club’s training wear.

Speaking to, Luke said “I am delighted to be able to supply Bedford Town with the new home shirt and training kit for this coming season.

“Being a local lad and having played for the club in my youth days this was a great way in giving back and supporting local business and I am happy that Bedford have chosen to work with me.”

Hyde continued, “We at Evolve have just opened a retail shop based in Kempston that we supply sportswear and school wear from and agreeing a deal with Bedford Town shows that they are also keen to support local businesses.

“We wish Bedford all the best for the season and will be down cheering them on.”

Despite the Premier League and Football League looking to plough on into the summer to complete their leagues, non-league football decided to void the season some time ago, with Bedford Town settled in mid-table, despite looking to make a late surge for the play offs.

Supporters will be able to purchase the new home replica kit soon via the online club shop, with the exact release date to be confirmed as the club step up their preparations for the new season.
