New Badges

PostedDecember 20, 2019

We are pleased to announce that 4 new Cowdenbeath FC commemorative badges will be on sale from the club shop at Saturday’s game v Stenhousemuir and then by Monday they will be in stock in our High Street outlet at Beath Bargain Store. These are an ideal Xmas gift for all Cowden fans.

The 4 badges are as pictured :

1. We have the iconic 1st team jersey being worn in the current season. It is fitting that the front of shirt sponsors are Delta 70 as it was in 1970 — 50 years ago — the blue and white candy striped jersey was first worn as Cowden won promotion to the top flight.

2. To further commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1969/70 promotion season a new club crest badge bearing that date and a gold 50 legend has also being produced.

3. We also now are delighted to have available a club crest badge that bears both the motto of the town of Cowdenbeath ‘Stent Nae Stent’ (basically meaning ‘always give of your best’) and the proud motto of the Fife Miners — the lifeblood of the town of Cowdenbeath FC and the men who founded Cowdenbeath FC — ’Aye tae the Fore’.

4. At one time as well as ‘the Miners’ Cowdenbeath FC also had the alternative nickname of ‘the Signalmen’. Back then the town was surrounded and infiltrated by railway lines. Cowdenbeath also played in red and white striped jerseys from the late 1880s until 1911 and that seems to have helped prompt this nickname – from the red lights on the railway signals we surmise. The nickname spanned the era when Cowden were based at North End Park (until 1917) and of course at that time the crowds at the ground would see all the trains and the signals on the nearby railway embankment that overlooked the ground. Thus in honour of the Signalmen nickname Cowdenbeath FC have now produced a badge bearing this traditional Club nickname — it also anticipates Cowdenbeath FC’s 140th anniversary in 2020 (club was founded in 1880 not 1881 as often is erroneously stated). Also there is a nod to the recent passing of North End Park where CFC/the Signalmen played from 1880 until 1917.

Each badge is individually priced at 4.50 but the set comprising all 4 of the new badges can be purchased for 16.
