Hi everyone,

Not sure where to start as I appreciate everything went very quiet over the last 2 years. There's been a run-in with health, as well as a second project taking up a lot of time. To everyone who's been in touch, thank you ever so much for your kind patience. I sincerely hope that this post should start to get some excitement back in the camp!

I've not mentioned this anywhere officially yet, the first news is on the CBF because you are all brilliant and when the business first started years ago, likewise, it started here!

------

After 4 years of development, thinking it was ready, then realising it wasn't, false starts etc... It's now ready for the 2020 season.

Within the next 3 months, Stretton Fox is releasing on a global scale to retailers in all cricket continents, the first-ever fully mouldable thigh pads.

10mm thick, ambidextrous, and the party piece is a clever feature allowing anyone anywhere to mould them directly to their body. Big or small, everyone gets a close and comfortable fit from an "of the shelf" range of armour. Pricing will also be the same as regular retail thigh pads rather than the slightly prohibitive bespoke cost of having them made individually.

- There will be 3 sizes of thigh pad sets, fitting from 4'10'' up to 6'3''
- Chest guards
- Armguards
- Keeper/fielding pads

Over the next month, I'll be releasing photos and more information on this range. It's wonderful to be back!

Very best regards to you all,

George

Same. I was looking at a chest guard for practicing mainly but OTS ones are all so bulky. So these sound spot on, as do the thigh guards. Use P2's at present, which are fine but they are pretty bulky.

Great news on all fronts George; looking to replace my somewhat ancient H4L thigh guards, and this seems like it could be just the thing. Excited to see the photographs when ready.

Thanks everyone! Over the moon to finally be in a position to get a proper retail range out.

I'll see what sort of sneak peeks can be grabbed over the next week!

Actually, here's a question for everyone...

Over 500 pros use the kit, in the past we've had "spot the fox" which will hopefully continue ;)

I'm in discussions with a lot of teams and specific individuals about what they are legally allowed to say on social media to drum up friction for the brand. It tends to vary depending on the main sponsor etc...

However, I need to create a # for social media. Something a bit more clever than just #strettonfox (bit boring!)

Question to everyone, what would be a good # for anyone to use to state that they are part of the SF family? As I'm planning a bit of a landslide :)

Winning # might have to get a full set of guards as a prize :)

Love this forum! wish my extended family was this much fun to speak with!
