St Albans City FC have unveiled a brand-new club crest as they enter a “new era” in their history.
The badge now has a circular style as seen in the early 1990s and features the city’s Roman heritage with striking yellow and blue designs to incorporate the club’s famous colours.
Ben Killner, who designed the new crest, said: “As a local member of the community, a coach and a fan of both St Albans City Youth and St Albans City, I am delighted to have been involved with the concept creation and design of our new club badge.
“It aligns the youth football club and senior football club and celebrates our great city. It provides us with a symbol that we can all be proud of.”
Lawrence Levy, club chairman, added: “The decision to implement a new crest was collective and one we didn’t take lightly. We included some of our young Saints and fans who were also involved in the whole design process.
“We brought the many elements of our city and club’s history; the Roman shield, the Abbey and the halo as well as the year we were founded.
“We wanted to make sure that our heritage remains very much part of our future, and we look to progress both on and off the pitch. I hope all our fans will love the new crest.
“With some exciting times ahead, I will be proud to see our fans and players wear the new crest and really can’t wait for the new season to start.”
