Bootleggers Launch New Alternate Kit

CLAYTON, NC – The Clayton Rugby Football Club is very excited to share the design for the new club kit set to hit the pitch in early 2018. A blend of old and new, the kit continues the club’s use of BLK with World Rugby Shop providing the kit. The alternate kit pays homage to the club’s traditional hooped theme while also bringing a solid color element into play. The new design serves as the perfect complement to the current hooped black and gold jerseys that the Bootleggers that has become the club’s trademark.

The Bootlegger’s are also stepping back in time and bringing back a true collar to the jersey. A feature that has all but disappeared from rugby jerseys in the past decade, the formal collar brings a touch of class to the new jersey. The jersey is adorned with some of our many great partners with Deep River Brewing Company, Clayton Chiropractic, and Crossfit Clayton making return appearances. World Rugby Shop and The Redneck BBQ Lab are welcomed newcomers to the Bootlegger’s kit. 

“We’re extremely pleased with the new designs,” said Club President Ted Hardy. “This will be a perfect change strip for us and hopefully something that our players and fans enjoy.”

The club is offering the match jerseys and replica versions, in both men’s and women’s styles, for sale to fans. The club is taking pre-sale on the replicas over the next few weeks. If you’re interested in one, please contact us at for details.
