WANDERERS have confirmed that the club’s new kit will see the return of the elephant logo after an absence of 40 years, plus the town motto “supera moras.”

The elephant appeared on various kits between the 1920s and 1970s, including the four successful FA Cup finals.

The town crest, translated to “overcome delays,” will appear on the new kit, created by new sponsors Macron.

Richard Gough, head of commercial for Bolton Wanderers, said: “When we looked at the elephant design from down the years, the hand-made nature of the badges from that era meant there were no two alike.

“Without a single reference point, we had the opportunity to update the design for the 21st century in such a format to be trademarked as our own and for it to be more easily reproduced both in print and on fabrics.”
