BRAEHEAD Clan got in the Burns Night spirit on Saturday as they launched a special edition jersey for the occasion inspired by Outlander.

The Elite League outfit achieved global fame two years ago when their kilt-themed St Andrews Day effort went viral around the world, before coming in at number 25 in the Evening Times' recent '100 Most Memorable Scottish Kits' series.

Clan celebrated their Scottish roots once again during the 4-3 win over Edinburgh Capitals at the Braehead Arena last weekend, wearing a new tartan outfit complete with sporran and sash.

Hockey & Operations Director Gareth Chalmers was pleased at the reaction to the jerseys, which were inspired by the popular books and TV show.

“The St Andrew’s Day kilt from a couple of years ago got a lot of people talking and we wanted to go down the same route for Burns Night” he said.

“With the success of the TV show, ‘Outlander’, we decided to come up with something along that vein and I was pleased at how well it was received.

"As it’s Burns Night this week and playing a fellow Scottish team in Edinburgh, it was an ideal opportunity to commission and wear it.

“Once again, we’ve done something a little bit different and it’s been another successful jersey that the fans really liked.”

The jerseys were then auctioned at the end of the game and raised £8.100 for Beatson Cancer Charity and Glasgow's Children's Hospital.

“I’m always more and more pleasantly surprised by the sort of money that’s raised for these jerseys and once again, the Purple Army delivered," said Chalmers.

“I want to thank everyone who bid and especially those who purchased the jerseys to make this another great success for Braehead Clan and our official charities.”
