Woking have shared details of a vote to be held over the club’s crest.

This is described as the opening part of the National League side’s ‘exciting vision for new club branding’, with the Cards’ founding year to be corrected to 1887 in the updated design to correspond with the year the club was actually founded.

The club’s head of media Nick Shaw said: “Work properly started on the redesign of the club badge back in November, but Daniel O’Sullivan and myself had been thinking about it long before then. I’ve long advocated for the founding year on the club badge to be changed to 1887, as many who know me will testify to, and the club rebranding presented a fantastic opportunity for this change to finally take place.

“It’s only right that the fans have a say in which badge we finally go for, so I’m very interested in which one they pick!”

Chairman Rosemary Johnson added: “The founding year being incorrect on the badge has been a long-standing issue which has come up time and again over the years, and I’m pleased that it is now being addressed with the new club branding. My thanks go to (club historian) Mark Doyle for pushing the matter, and Nick and Daniel for their hard work with the new designs.”
