For us, taking part in sport is more than enough. We just love to see teams of men, women, boys and girls of all ages, colours, creeds, shapes and sizes playing sport. We literally love to see it, and it fuels our passion for what we do. But when teams wearing KUDOS win, it’s just that tiny bit sweeter. In 2019, Solent Thrashers American Football team  didn’t just win – they carried all before them, going unbeaten throughout their season, winning every game and duly winning the title.


The Thrashers made the Division 1 play-offs in both 2017 and 2018 – but in 2019, with the coaching staff newly-equipped with Kudos apparel, they went all the way to the BAFA Division 1 National Championship game at the New River Stadium in London and came away as the winners over the Sandwell Steelers in a thrilling game.

The Thrashers, based in Southampton, went undefeated in the regular season posting up a 10 win / zero losses season, before beating the London Hornets and the Cambridgeshire Cats on the way to the final. The team will now carry the Thrashers colours, and their Kudos coaching uniforms, into the BAFA Premier Division South – the first time the club has reached the first tier of British American Football.

Head coach Steve Rains addresses his all-conquering charges

Head coach Steve Rains said:

Players often talk about ‘look good = play good’ – well now we can say ‘look good = coach good!’ There is no doubt our Kudos sideline apparel made us stand out on the sideline just as the players stood out on the field. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Kudos. steve rains, solent thrashers head coach

It’s a joy for us to not only see Solent Thrashers doing so well, but simply to be associated with the club and British American Football, which seems to us to be in rude health. All the very best to Steve and the club for the season ahead.
