The new Brentford 2008/09 Puma Away Kit was officially launched at Griffin Park. Brentford have followed in the footsteps of Aston Villa and Hampton & Richmond Borough by giving over kit sponsorship to charity.

The secondary sponsors' patch on their new away kit, launched on Friday and to be worn for the first time at Swansea tomorrow, will be donated to the national heart charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

CRY's logo will appear on the back of the shirts forthcoming season.  

Brentford already have good links with the charity as manager Andy Scott is one of their patrons.

Former Bees striker Scott had to retire early from playing after suffering a life-threatening heart disorder called hypertrophic cardiomypathy while playing for Leyton Orient.

Scott said: "I'm very grateful to Brentford FC for the opportunity given of linking up with a charity that is very close to me personally.

gimnasia_y_esgrima_la_plata_puma_kits.jpg

Jésica Cirio and Valeria Davicce unveiled the new Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata 08/09 home and away kit made by Puma. 

The "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata" was founded on June 3, 1887 as a civil association, and thus is the oldest surviving football club in the whole of South America.

Its foundation came barely five years after the creation of the City of La Plata in 1882. The first sports offered to its members were, as its Spanish name indicates, gymnastics and fencing. Clubs supporting these sports were common among the upper classes at the end of the 19th century (cf. the prior foundation of Gimnasia y Esgrima de Buenos Aires in 1880). Later on, other disciplines were added, including track and field, football, basketball and rugby.
