Accrington Stanley have taken inspiration from Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid to commemorate their tenth season back in the Football League.
The Reds have put a ‘special touch’ on their 2015/16 shirts by including a ‘decima’ badge designed by supporter Matt Osborne.
It comes from the Spanish word meaning ‘tenth’ and was also used by La Liga giants Real Madrid a year ago in the final of the European Super Cup to commemorate their 10 Champions League titles.
The Stanley ‘decima’ badge was worn for the first time on their new home shirt during last weekend’s friendly match against local rivals Blackburn Rovers.
The badge will feature on all first team shirts and replica shirts and it will also be added to last season’s yellow and blue away strip.
Stanley gained league status for the first time in 44 years after being promoted from the Conference in 2006.
Last season the club finished in 17th position with their highest placing coming in the 2010/11 season when the achieved fifth.
Real Madrid were crowned European champions for the 10th time in 2014.
