Brockwell United launch new kit

By Diana Morais

Brockwell United FC, a grassroots club for women, non-binary and genderqueer people, embrace impact of the Lionesses success with a refreshed kit, and for the first time in the club’s history, a bespoke goalkeeper kit.

The kit photoshoot took place in Brockwell Park, where it all began for the team in 2017, with the park and nesting swans a central part of the club’s logo and identity.

The kit will be launched on Saturday 20 April at an event to raise funds for the club’s charity partner, The Baytree Centre, a Brixton-based charity provides education and support to over 800 local women and girls.

The event will begin with a screening of cult-classic film, ‘Bend it Like Beckham’ at Brixton brewery and taproom, Friendship Adventure. The team look forward to celebrating how far women’s football has come since the film was released in 2002, and will be followed by a party with other local grassroots clubs.

Sophie Page – chair of Brockwell United – said: “The new goalkeeper kit is fierce and bold and symbolises the respect we have for goalkeepers. It can be a punishing role, but so
rewarding in those difficult moments in a game.

“Even though the Lionesses lost their World Cup final game against Spain, as a team we celebrated big when Earps saved that penalty.

We recognised the confidence and power required to make that type of save with the world watching.”

MOMA spokesperson said: “As a business with our roots firmly in South East London, we’re delighted to continue our sponsorship of Brockwell United FC and are proud to be supporting their inclusive mission to get women and those from the LGBTQ+ community playing football at all levels.”
