Clothing brand celebrates rivalry

DUMFRIESSHIRE based sportswear brand Toe Poke has launched a new range of clothing to celebrate Scotland and England’s international rivalry.

The fan-owned brand’s new design takes a tongue in cheek approach to Scotland’s victory over England in 1976, when Kenny Dalglish scored the winning goal through England goalkeeper Ray Clemence’s legs.

The stylish clothes will be prepared and distributed by Lochmaben company Rostrum Sportswear.

Commenting on the new designs, Toe Poke founder and director Ian Barr, who lives in Moffat, said: “It’s always memorable when Scotland play England at football, and we’ve had some stunning victories over the years. Toe Poke clothes are aimed at all ages, but in particular for older fans of the Scottish national teams, so people can wear our stylish clothes and enjoy our heritage designs.”

Chief executive of Supporters Direct Scotland Alan Russell added: “It’s been great to see the Toe Poke project get off the ground, and I’m sure the latest designs of King Kenny in action will be a huge hit with Scottish football fans! Celebrating the highlights of our footballing past can help to strengthen the foundations of our future, and Toe Poke’s mission to invest in grassroots football is one we hope everyone can get behind.”
