New Project For Custom Work – Renford Rejects

Wednesday, 19th October, 2011

I love custom stuff, and since I can make my own t-shirts and other clothing that is what I love to do. I have done a few things in the past, here is a small sample of what I have done…

You can read about all of these in my blog, where I have blogged about them as I have done them over the past 2 years or so.

Now I have a new challenge, and it comes in the form of…

The Renford Rejects!

I LOVED that show as a kid, if you have no idea what it is you are either too young or you had no childhood! πŸ˜‰ :mrgreen: It was a UK show about school kids who were in a 5-a-side football team, it was so good πŸ˜› You can search YouTube and watch the episodes.

Anyway…I want a Renford Rejects football shirt! Well, there is no such thing, and no hope of getting one either since the programme is over 10 years old. So the only solution is to create one. So here is my concept.

Renford Rejects football shirt for 2011/12. I know the original supplier of their shirts, I checked them out and they do not make the shirts any more. In fact, I couldn’t find a single supplier who did shirts in the original colour of the Renford Rejects, black and purple stripes πŸ™ This presents the obvious problem, it will loose a bit of it’s authenticity. Here is what the original shirts look like:


Here are the contenders for the “new” shirt which I will use…


So nothing like what the original was like πŸ™ But its an “updated” shirt for 2011, so we will say they have changed their colours, or style, which some teams have done in the past. I may do two shirts, a home and an away. I cannot decide which colour to go for. I think maybe the first pic, blue and black, it is probably the closest toΒ the real one. Unfortunately I have searched high and low for ANY kind of black and purple vertical striped shirts, and cannot find a single one.

I will need to create a simple logo for the badge, print a sponsor “Supra Drain” of course, and I will do a name and number on the back even though the originals didn’t have one.

If you have any ideas or suggestions let me know πŸ™‚ I will be posting the shirt when I have done it, can’t wait πŸ˜€


I have made the shirt, you can see it here:

  1. Danni Said,

    Personally can’t wait to see the finished product! Would love one myself as I was a big fan of the show as a child.
