King's Lynn Town want young fans to design the new club's playing kit ahead of the Linnets' 2010/11 competitive bow.
Operations manager Jonathan Chapman confirmed today anyone aged 16 and under can enter the competition to design the kit by downloading a template from the official web site.
The competition winner will receive a framed kit signed by the club's first team and presented to them at the first match of next season.
“At the supporters' forum we said that we would look to involve local children with the club as much as possible and this is an ideal way to start,” said Chapman. “The only guidelines are that the first choice shirt is in the club colours of gold and blue with blue shorts and blue socks, and the away kit choice of colour is white and black shirts with black shorts and black socks.”
Club chief Buster Chapman will head the judging panel which also includes West Norfolk council, Gordon Chilvers from the supporters' club and Blue and Gold Trust chairman Neil Timms.

“It should be an enjoyable task but no doubt selecting a winner will be difficult,” said Chapman. “The prize on offer is fantastic and I would encourage schools, groups and children everywhere to get involved.”
Lynn officials have held positive talks with the FA at Wembley regarding the club's proposed return to the non league pyramid. The game's governing body will now make their recommendations pending a formal application from Lynn Town to a step five league.
The club has also announced two further pre-season friendlies with the Linnets travelling to Spalding on Saturday July 17 and hosting Stamford on Saturday July 31. Work has also began on re-seeding the playing surface at The Walks after the club and West Norfolk council agreed a temporary ground lease.
The closing date for entries to the kit competition is Monday April 26 with the winner announced later that week. For full details visit kltown.co.uk
