A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from Mark Douglas, which includes a link to a report on The Chronicle’s website about manufacturer Castore.
Castore was rumoured to be taking over from Puma for the 2021/22 season as Newcastle’s kit manufacturers, and this comment would suggest that deal is happening if the Toon stay up, which these fans clearly doubt.
“They hope… we could be in Championship yet haha”
“Bold of them to assume we’re not going down.”
“Can’t be our next kit then”
Do you think Castore will make Newcastle's kits next season?
Yes, it is looking that way
No, we will be stuck with Puma
The company are also rumoured to be producing Wolverhampton Wanderers’ kits next season, so these comments could be hinting at that rather than any deal with the Toon.
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans, who had their say.
“I know many knock our Puma kits but changing to Castore would be a massive backwards step based on the feedback from Rangers fans regarding their shirts, poor quality & they don’t wash well etc”
“A know a guy who’s Castore Rangers shirt fell to bits, he was fuming, said it was the worst 30 lira he ever spent…”
It is clear that Douglas thinks that the proposed deal between the Toon and Castore was the one that Beahon was hinting at; however, given the Toon’s Premier League position, we can see why some of these Newcastle fans are not so sure.
