NOT TO BE deterred by Bohemians’ ill-fated Bob Marley-inspired shirt, Wexford FC have released a new kit that features an icon figure.

In the design of the SSE Airtricity League First Division club’s latest home jersey, you will notice the face of Che Guevara — the Argentine-born physician who became a key leader in the Cuban Revolution.  

Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick created the famous two-toned image of Guevara in 1968 and it has since been used on posters and t-shirts countless times around the world.

The jersey, which is in Wexford’s traditional bright pink, is made by Bodibro and sponsored by founder, owner and former manager, MEP Mick Wallace, and his political group The European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL).
