Fans decide on Colours and Crest
At a public meeting of the community football club Hinckley AFC, those present decided what colours their new football team would be playing in, and also what style of club crest would be on the kit.

In keeping with tradition with football clubs from Hinckley, it was voted that the colours would be Red & Blue, continuing some kind of link with previous clubs, and a new departure of Violet & White. The spirit of change was too overwhelming for many and it was voted that Red & Blue would be the Home kit for Hinckley AFC, leaving the popular, but obviously too daunting to evolve, Violet & White as Away kit. The vote also took place for designs, and almost everyone in the room chose the classic retro style plain shirt with diagonal sash, for both home and away.

The club crest was also chosen, with 6 designs incorporating various phoenix designs, a Hansom Cabriolet, and Simon De Montforts 'Lion Rampant'. With no outright favourite, it was voted for a design that compiled all the elements into one crest.
