Previous, current and future shirts.

As expected, we have comprehensive records of the shirts in the team kits worn by the various teams throughout the years. We've always had images and graphics of the shirts, but rarely have they been as detailed as the images updated on this page. Also, the format is the same, so the entire range of shirts is shown below. The shirts were initially used in the 6-a-side and then some crossed over to the 11-a-side based in Sunderland and the overseas tours and basketball teams.

With more friendly games scheduled throughout the year, and also a revival of the 6-a-side League in a 5-a-side tournament format, it was decided to finance a new shirt. The brand is AWDis, a well known supplier of hoodies and other similar garments. The shirt is 100% polyester. It will be used for 11-a-side and small sided tournaments and events.

This white shirt is labelled as an Adidas France jersey and is double layered. The Sassco badge is embroidered and it also contains a Charter Standard badge on the sleeve. It resumes the Sassco curved text on the back shoulder with numbering from 02 to 16.

Adidas logo 2010-2011 shirt.

The style is Adidas Toque and the colour is a cobalt (blue). It will have the embroidered badge, as well as the new sponsor logo of The Bunker, who are our permanent sponsors.

Adidas logo Italy Tour 2011 shirt.
The Adidas shirt was used in the Italy Tour 2011. The shirts were non-named and numbered.Adidas Italy Tour shirt 2011

Adidas logo Spain Tour 2010 shirt.
The Overseas Tour in 2010 took Sassco to Spain. The shirt was a vest instead of the previous standard football shirts, mainly due to the excessive heat which the team experienced in Malta and Portugal. Also, having to use the same shirt for three consecutive games meant that there was be less perspiration on a running/training vest. The brand is Adidas and the colour is a cyan variation, and will have the embroidered badge, as well as the tour logo and player names on the reverse. The font style is based on the Spain Tour 2010 logo. The shirt was sponsored by Red Fox.Adidas Spain Tour shirt

Adidas logo Portugal Tour 2009 shirt.
The Portugal Tour saw Sassco wearing a new Adidas shirt. In Malta, the team wore the rebadged white short sleeve shirt. The brand new one-off shirt was given to the players to keep. The brand is Tabela II and had the embroidered badge, as well as the Portugal Tour logo and player names on the reverse. The standard Sassco style numbering wasl also be on the reverse. The shirt was sponsored by Red Fox.2008-2009 iKobo short and long sleeve shirt.

Adidas logo Squadra 2008-2010 iKobo short and long sleeve shirt.
Due to the quality of the previous Adidas shirt, it was decided to focus on genuine Adidas products instead of the custom designed shirts from now on. The very popular iKobo shirt was used for the 2008-2009 season in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, as the first shirt and carried on into the 2009-2010 season. There were a combination of short and long sleeve shirts available and these featured the iKobo sponsor markings as well as the standard Sassco style numbering on the reverse and also the embroidered badge on the front. No longer in circulation2008-2009 iKobo short and long sleeve shirt.

kappa Clone 2008-2009 Kappa red shirt.
For the first time since Sassco was founded, it was decided to purchase a non-Adidas branded shirt for the second shirt in 2008-2009 (due to excellent value). Kappa were one of the brands considered before it was decided on Adidas back in 1999. This shirt didn't contain a sponsor logo on. It is now no longer in circulation due to unpopularity as the majority of the team gained considerable weight during the winter months. However, it was periodically used for the 6-a-side before going out of circulation.2008-2009 Kappa red shirt.

Adidas logo Squadra 2007-2008 MJS short sleeve / Malta 2008 Tour shirt.
The short sleeve shirt was a very popular one. Made by Adidas, the shirt contained an embroidered Sassco badge and an FA Charter Standard badge on the sleeve (both produced and imported from China). The numbering and team name appeared on the back as they did on the previous Milltech shirt. The MJS logo appeared on the front. The numbering and logo was printed by Washington Badge & Embroidery.

This was taken out of circulaton and was re-printed and used in Sassco's overseas tour to Malta, with the Red Fox tour sponsor logo on. This shirt is now out of circulation after November 2008 as it was given to each player who took part in the tour.

Red Fox Malta shirt

2007-2008 MJS short sleeve / Malta 2008 Tour shirt. 

Adidas logo 2007-2008 6-a-side long sleeve shirt.
A shirt purchased specifically for the 6-a-side Leagues. Sassco lifted a trophy wearing this Adidas branded, long sleeve shirt in 2008. The curved Sassco text appeared on the reverse and the badge was printed by Aztec Print.

6-a-side-shirt

suzarn_small2007-2008 MJS Lycra® long sleeve shirt.
The long sleeve shirt was custom produced from Sialkot, Pakistan (as were the Milltech and Manpower shirts). This was the first Sassco shirt to be made of Lycra® material. Both the Sassco and FA Charter Standard badges were embroidered, albeit not accurately, which led to separate badges being sourced from China and sewn on for any future shirts. The style was similar to the Manpower shirt, but with the addition of a collar and also a filled v-neck. The Sassco name and number appeared on the back in the style used by the previous Milltech shirt. This is no longer used by the Sassco 11-a-side adult team and had been passed on the the Under 18 Sassco Impact team for a brief time before going out of circulation.

2007-2008 MJS Lycra® long sleeve shirt.

suzarn_small2006-2007 Milltech shirt.
The second designed custom shirt. Made in the same high quality polyester, the shirt also contained an embroidered Team Sassco badge as well as a printed Milltech sponsor logo. This was the first shirt to show the Sassco name on the back along with numbering as 01, 02, etc. Sizing was a XL due to the sizing problems with the previous Manpower shirt. This shirt is no longer in circulation.

Manpower-shirt

suzarn_small2005-2007 Manpower shirt.
Not hugely popular due to the size problems and poor printing of the numbers on the back. Most of the shirts were L size. But, this was the first custom designed shirt for Sassco. Made in high quality polyester, the shirt also contained an embroidered Team Sassco badge as well as the Manpower sponsor logo. Was seen from time to time in the 6-a-side, but now no longer in circulation.

2006-2007 Milltech shirt.

Adidas logo Nova 2002-2005 Sassco shirts

A popular and much used shirt, spanning three years. Came into first use during Sassco's 6-a-side Season 4 campaign which ended with a triumphant 4-0 win over Sporting Redhouse in the SFL Cup Competition. These had to be purchased from Germany as Adidas didn't distribute unbranded team kits until around 2005. The blue one was a necessity as a second kit when the 11-a-side team started. These shirts were used on occasions as a spare shirt by various 6-a-side teams, but are now no longer in circulation. Made by Adidas, the shirts were 100% polyester and contained a vinyl Sassco badge with red numbering on the back of the white shirt and white numbering on the blue shirt.

2002-2005 Sassco shirts.

2002-2005 Sassco shirts. Adidas logo Paris 2001 Herrenknecht / Sassco 6-a-side short sleeve shirts.
A shirt used as a "Summer shirt" for the 6-a-side. Unfortunately, these were paint damaged and were therefore unusable. Due to the poor weather, another short sleeve shirt wasn't purchased until the Summer of 2007 for the 11-a-side.

herrenknecht-shirt

Adidas logo Liga Cup 1999-2001 Herrenknecht / Sassco 6-a-side shirts.
A rarely remembered shirt and the first ever Sassco badged shirt, which was used for the 6-a-side. Made by Adidas and imported from the United States. The brand name was Liga Cup and it was quite unusual as it had the old Adidas Trefoil logo on. This was introduced at a time when "retro" looks were unheard of. This was close to becoming the first 11-a-side shirt, but was changed in favour of the ones shown above. It started with a Herrenknecht badge, but was changed once the Sassco name was introduced in 2001. Looking back, this was by far the most stylish shirt Sassco had worn and is the influence behind the current iKobo shirt.

Liga-Cup-Shirt

1999-2000 Herrenknecht 6-a-side shirts.
The first ever "Sassco" shirt, although the name Sassco wasn't conceived until a few years after it's introduction. The shirt was non-branded and generic. The team name at the time was Herrenknecht as it was the sponsors name.
