Purchase a piece of history today!

By David Watters

A limited edition of the fiftieth anniversary badges the Northern Premier League commissioned to celebrate the competition's historic 2017-18 season have gone on sale!

Already collector's items, just over 200 of the enamel badges bearing the one-off anniversary logo marking the EVO-STIK League's founding in 1968 were made available for fans, players and officials to purchase on Thursday.

Priced at £4, including post and packaging and with a delivery time of up to seven days, the badges can be ordered via email at enquiries@evostikleague.co.uk.

Since being unveiled last August to kick off the landmark campaign, the logo on the badges has been used to publicise a series of events including the online poll to choose the NPL's top 100 players of the last five decades, Legends XI and top bosses.

The badges won't lose any value or currency for the first half of the upcoming season either as the logo will continue to be used by clubs and on the EVO-STIK League's official website and social media channels until December 31 2018.
