Hemel Hempstead Town have started a new era after they unveiled the new club badge.

Chairman Dave Boggins confirmed the club had been approached at the end of last season with an idea of changing the crest.

Designs were looked at by the club’s committee and subsequently by the Tudors Supporters Club before the green light was given for the new look.

In a statement, Boggins said: “The club were approached towards the end of the 2020/21 season with reference to ‘freshening up’ the club badge.

“The images supplied were reviewed by the committee, and a couple of minor adjustments were made.

“At this point, the images were reviewed by members of the Tudors Supporters Club, and the comments were positive.

“I am delighted to reveal the new club badge designed by Matt McGrath of Core Creative & Artwork Ltd.

“I would like to thank Matt for all of his work in creating this more modern version of ‘our Henry’.

“The badge will be seen on our forthcoming Hummel playing kits, travel packs and all associated media for the 2021/22 season.

“We are looking forward to the return of our fans!”

Boss Lee Bircham is also continuing his work to build the Tudors squad for the big kick-off in the National League South on August 14 with the addition of central defender Cole Kpekawa.

The former England Under-20 international arrives at Vauxhall Road following a short spell at Chelmsford City.

The 25-year-old started his career at Queens Park Rangers and has since played for Colchester United, Portsmouth, Barnsley, St Mirren, and AS Trencin in Slovakia.
