Football leagues across the country and the world have been ground to a halt thanks to COVID-19, with millions of players, supporters and coaches all waiting patiently for their beloved game to get back underway.

Included in that long list of cancellation casualties is the Toolstation Western League in the South West of England. The league was put on hold when the second wave of the pandemic hit, with no clear decision or direction on what is going to happen to the teams in promotion, relegation and champion positions.

The SWAZ team wanted to congratulate and celebrate the teams in the division in our own little way! Since our launch in 2015, the SWAZ tag line has always been ‘Winners Wear SWAZ’ as much as it’s a bit of tongue and cheek we have seen a lot of celebrations, achievements, and silverware being lifted by the teams we have supplied in that time.

However, we feel that the current league standings in the Western League are remarkable and unique and worth a mention – as the three teams that SWAZ produces a kit for in that division are placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Coincidence do you think, or do our kits give players superpowers? ….. jokes, but maybe!

When the season came to an end, it was Plymouth Parkway that led the way, with an undefeated start to the campaign, bagging an impressive 11 wins out of the 13 games, with just two draws.

They scored 50 goals and conceded just 10, which means they have the hottest attack and the tightest defence.

Hot on their heels, much like last season before that was curtailed, is Tavistock AFC. Having played a couple of games less than Parkway and most of the other teams in the division, they are looking like they are going to be series title contenders if the league is to restart.

And flying in the third position is Exmouth Town, who had a tricky start to the season but have come flying back with solid defence and electric counter-attacking football.

We are dearly hoping that the season can get back underway and the three SWAZ clubs in the division can cross the white line and get back to battle in a bid to become league champions and prove that Winners Wear SWAZ.

We are incredibly proud, and humbled, to be the kit supplier of three fantastic clubs that have such a rich history of success in South West football. And much like the rest of the world, we can’t wait for the action to restart and football to return!
