The History of Winston Sports

Winston Sports is a family run business and has been manufacturing clothing since 1978. Initially we produced denim jeans, children’s fashion clothing and school uniform / sportswear.

While schoolwear is still a very important part of our business, the fashion side has given way to the production of an every increasing range of bespoke sportswear, made to our customer’s specifications. As you know sportswear is fashion, changing continually with new designs, fabrics and performance enhancing ideas.


As the business grew it became obvious to us how important it is to have total control of all aspects of the manufacture, so with the exception of the weaving of the base fabrics, all the processes, from design to the finished product including printing and embroidery are completed in house.

Although Football and Rugby take up a large proportion of our output, we make garments for all sporting activities. Winston Sports offer you the opportunity to create your own unique clothing identity, be it for sporting activities, schoolwear or company image. We can turn your ideas into the finished product.

With the addition of new machinery for, embroidery, sceen printing and more recently wide format digital printing, we decided to increase our product range by offering our customers goods from leading brands, which could be customised by ourselves.

We have been producing garments for 35 years (1978-2013) and in 1998 we purchased an old established (1956) manufacturer of ties and scarves, which now trades as GRC Neckwear,
