On 7th January, Grimsby Town Football Club opened a vote for its supporters to have their say on the future use of the club’s crest.
These votes have now been counted and cross-referenced against our ticketing and club shop databases, as well as the Mariners Trust member database with assistance from the Trust Secretary.
Following the vote count, Grimsby Town Football Club can confirm that it will be implementing Crest B, the revised version of the crest, as designed by Rich Lyons, with results showing a 62.05% in favour of the revised design. You can read more about the changes proposed by reading our original post from New Year’s Day.
The implementation of our new crest, in line with our first ever GTFC brand guidelines, will be recognisable over the coming months as we ‘drip feed’ our rebranding efforts. As previously stated, examples of the former crest and brand will be visible across the club for some time whilst we continue to make these changes. Our current kit and existing merchandise will remain unchanged until next season.
We would like to thank all supporters who took the time to cast their vote, Sandii Raithby, Secretary of the Mariners Trust and our staff members for assisting with the verification of our voting process.
We would also encourage our supporters to register for our new mailing list using the sign-up function located at the bottom of our homepage (gtfc.co.uk). This will allow us to provide you with all the latest news, offers and information from Blundell Park.
