BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have just released their kits for the new season.

The new home shirt is similar to last season's, white with a green trim, but there are also green sleeves on the 2021/22 version.

The away shirt on this occasion is completely different.

Last year, Mark Bower's side ran out in a yellow/amber number, but this time, they will be donning red and black vertical stripes.

Like the city's premier rugby league team, Bradford Bulls, Avenue away kits have tended to make use of the red, amber and black colour scheme, so though it is a very different look from last season, it is not too much of a departure from tradition.

Both the home and away shirts, which will be worn by the ladies and academy sides too, cost £50 from the club's online shop, while you can also buy 2020/21 home and away shirts signed by the player of your choice for the same price.

The link to the shop can be found here.

Meanwhile, National League clubs have voted in favour of resolutions to introduce a salary cap and an ethics committee.

Clubs voted in favour despite the league and board’s recommendations that clubs vote against both resolutions.

The Salary Cap Resolution proposed a cap be introduced for season 2022/23.

It will establish a Working Party to 'consult with the aim of bringing a full proposal to the 2022 EGM for clubs to vote on'.

At present, the suggested cap is £900k per year at Step 1 and £540k at Step 2.

This may prove beneficial to Avenue, who openly admit they do not have the financial resources to compete with some of the bigger National League North sides.

Other big news to come out of the National League yesterday was that only three teams collectively will be relegated from the North and South divisions, with eight teams coming the other way as part of a restructure which will see 24 sides in both divisions.

There was also the warning that "the season will not begin without spectators or suitable grant funding".
