Covid-19 update

Black&Blue1871 is an online business and we remain open.  Please be aware that our normal delivery times may be affected due to the global outbreak of COVID-19.

Shirts that require logo embroidery or number patches may take 1-2 weeks to process and so delivery may be slower than normal. Due to high demand and the need for facemasks our embroiderer has a backlog of work and so shirt embroidery may be delayed as a result.

We thank you for your support and patience while we prepare your orders for delivery. We will update you once your order is ready to be shipped.

GIPSIES F.C.

GIPSIES were founded in 1868. During the summer of 1868 Francis Luscombe, James Alfred Body and William J. Parker, all keen former Tonbridge School Rugby Football players, arranged a card of matches with a few friends against some of the fledgling rugby clubs existing in London at that time. The club decided to play matches under both union and association rules. The Gipsies first played on Peckham Rye Common, using changing facilities at the ‘Kings Arms’ in Peckham Rye Road overlooking the playing area.

GIPSIES disbanded in 1883.
