Forest Pitch Strip Design Winners

February 10th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Earlier this week we announced the winners of the Forest Pitch primary schools’ strip design competition at Hampden Stadium by Shona Robison MSP. Loads of the 30 shortlisted children came with teachers and parents, and it was a great day, the kids (and me) getting to go out into the stadium for photos. Here are images of the winning designs, plus some photo’s for the day. There were 4 winners, whose designs will be made into actual strips for our Forest Pitch players to wear, and there was also a special commendation which we hope to make into the goalkeepers jerseys – see to see the full shortlist and for more details.
