Which new badge would you choose..if any?

We are the latest club to try and modernise our crest and the club have announced a few options but not many have appealed to the fans it seems.

EDIT: Apparently they weren't supposed to have been leaked yet so deleted that link incase anyone gets into bother !

The designs are out there, happy for them to show here.

J for me. I like the way it retains the badge shape, and has a modern take on the hornet design

R in second place... but WTF on the date!!??

I think what was done on the crest portion of L was very clever, although not enamoured with the rest of it. R (with a corrected date) is pretty good. J and a few others aren't bad. Be interested to see the final 5.

Stick with what we have and hope the club move onto something more worthwhile

C is best
D and E are acceptable
Not A or B

My first reaction was B as it stands out with a vicious looking Hornet and would stand out on a yellow shirt.
Now I am preferring E, and D is modern but not quite there....

Still D for me, but agree that its needs a little something else there.

Im up for the change to lose the "moose". But no doubt the moose will remain on this site for ever.

I'm a bit confused, does the winner of these 5 go up finally against Moosey, or is he already a gonna..?

It's option C v current badge in the final of Badge off ..

Looks like a fly to me, which is probably appropriate given what they hang around.

They will probably make sure the new badge wins regardless as the club wouldn't want to spend all this time and money going through the process to just end up with keeping the current one .

Option C..... So our nickname is also being changed then... "Come on you Wasps" ......eh?

Technically, all Hornets are Wasps... but not the other way round.

Final vote is underway for fans with an ID.

I voted Moose - but I suspect the fly will win whatever happens to save the clubs blushes.

Post subject:  Re: New badge..or stick with the current one?

Voted B, although I preferred one of the badges not selected for final cut.

I do love Moose, but its not like that badge was there at the creation of the club. Things change, and I understand the reason this is being looked at.

Post subject:  Re: New badge..or stick with the current one?

Decided not to vote in the end as I like old Moosey, every footy fan knows that face, but I was tempted to vote for the new option. Trouble is I always said I didn't want to have a bland looking squashed bee as our icon, and that's what's on offer.?!
So I basically can't choose with any conviction...its a thousand times less important than staving off relegation.!

Moose wins! Yay

Post subject:  Re: New badge..or stick with the current one?

I am glad tbh. Maybe as they say use a Hornet design for certain applications such WFC letterhead for comms, but for main logo and shirts we retain Moosey..

Good news but would have cost quite a bit in marketing costs to end up just keeping what we have .

According to the WO the club are going to have some sort of badge which will just be used on the merchandise and marketing rather than club shirts .
