I'm an Ebbsfleet United supporter and while I like Macron - I'm talking the sportswear firm, not the French president - I think there's a gap in the market for something a little different. So one August  evening I sketched a new 'EUFC' logo with the intention of producing new clothing lines and products for Fleet fans. Fast forward three months and here we are...
There are four initial items of clothing available - two white T-shirts, one red T-shirt and a LIMITED EDITION adidas polo shirt with embroidered logos.
Fruit of the Loom - S: 35-37" M: 38-40" L: 41-43" XL: 44-46" XXL: 47-49" 3XL: 50-52"
adidas - S: 34-37" M: 37-40" L: 40-44" XL: 44-48" XXL: 48-52" 3XL: 53-58"
In order to test the market to see if anyone (a) likes the logo and (b) likes the designs, I have chosen to use Crowdfunder and ask people to 'pledge' their money in order to obtain a T-shirt or polo shirt.
When you pledge to support this project, your credit/debit card will be charged immediately. However, I will not receive your pledge until the project has successfully hit its target. Instead your payment is held in an 'escrow' account, which is a third-party holding account.
Should the project be unsuccessful, your pledge will be refunded to you within five working days.
If the project is successful, I will receive the pledges within seven working days and then order the clothing.
At no point will I receive your card details.
Please note that you are not required to include the 'Your tip' that is suggested by Crowdfunder. You can simply set this to zero by selecting 'Other amount' and then entering '0' in the box. Should you wish to include a tip, this is used by Crowdfunder to support other projects.
Postage to any UK address is included, but shirts can be shipped anywhere. If you don't live in the UK, please add an additional amount to your pledge as follows:
Europe: +£3; World Zone 1: +£4; World Zone 2: +£5
Click to check which World Zone you live in.
Shirts can also be collected from me in the pub before a home game by arrangement.
Unfortunately delivery cannot take place before Christmas. However, should you wish to pledge as a gift, then a card will be sent to you that can be used as a substitute present. If the target is reached, delivery will occur in January 2019.
Personal Data and Security
This project is GDPR compliant.
When you pledge, you will be asked whether you wish to remain anonymous. If you choose this option, your name will not be included in the list of supporters on the project's page.
You will also be given the option whether you wish to receive emails from the project, namely updates and/or promotional messages.
Crowdfunder will share your name and contact details with me so I can thank you for your support and then fulfil your pledge if the project is successful. Your information will not be used for any other purpose nor shared with anyone else.
You may be thinking "Robins Creek? What's that got to do with the Fleet?"
I was looking for a local name for the brand, something that was a bit 'left field' but also distinctive. Having scoured the map for far too long, suddenly the piece of water just to the north of Stonebridge Road poured off the page. Robins Creek is the site of the historic Northfleet Harbour, and there are plans to turn it into an attractive and useable marina.
Further information is available from the Northfleet Harbour Restoration Trust.
If this project is successful, then further designs will be made available for sale - there are four more ready to go! - through a new Robins Creek online shop that will be created thanks to your support of this project.
