  • "Please calm down everyone! Yes it is a bit embarrassing for the club, but it's only a logo, and they did the right thing in asking supporters what their opinions were. There wasn't much change in the new logos, just different fonts and colours. The name wasn't going to change anyway. It's better that they asked supporters their opinions rather than just changing it without consultation, like Cardiff City did. Imagine the uproar if they changed the logo and then had to revert back to the old one."

Dragons pull logo campaign

Free Press Series: STAYING: The current logo STAYING: The current logo

NEWPORT Gwent Dragons have decided to abort their supporters’ vote for a new crest less than 24 hours after it began.

The Rodney Parade region have pulled the campaign in an embarrassing climbdown after receiving negative feedback.

There have been 2,234 votes since the yourdragons.co.uk website went live at 6pm yesterday but the current logo - which has been on the jersey since 2003 - will remain next season.

The idea opened up a can of worms, firing up the rival factions that argue for a return to just Newport or for the region simply to called the Dragons.

A statement to supporters reads: “Yesterday we launched the ‘Your Dragons’ campaign, an initiative aimed at asking you, the supporter, to choose the new Newport Gwent Dragons logo for next season.

“We launched the campaign with the best intentions of providing you with the opportunity to choose the logo you enjoyed the most.

“Yet in light of the vast amount of feedback we have received from the Newport Gwent Dragons community, we have unanimously learned that the logos do not resonate with you in the way in which they were intended.

“As a result, we have decided to withdraw the campaign and will continue to use the current Newport Gwent Dragons logo for next season.

“Your feedback is always highly valuable to us and we hope that our swift response demonstrates our commitment to your thoughts.”
