They plan to boldly go - where a Mirfield man has gone before.

Mirfield’s rugby league club has unveiled a new playing shirt to pay homage to the town’s most famous son – Sir Patrick Stewart.

The Stags’ 2015-16 Pennine League away strip features a design similar to that worn by the world-famous actor and big Huddersfield Town fan in his time as Star Trek’s commander, Jean-Luc Picard.

It’s a completely bespoke design, created to provide a twist on the popular science fiction classic by Mirfield Stags’ official kit supplier ISC Teamwear, with maroon, black and a hint of gold providing the colour scheme.

And Stags managing director Ryan Sparks couldn’t be happier with the final look.

“We’re really pleased with the finished product,” he said.

Sir Patrick Stewart is quite possibly the biggest name to have ever come out of Mirfield and we are proud to pay tribute to him in this manner.

“This is a simply fantastic playing strip and it looks great on the players.”

The kit will be worn by the Stags’ open-age sides throughout their time in the Pennine League and winter-based cup competitions, right up until the end of April.

The club are coached by top Super League referee Richard Silverwood.

Stewart played Picard in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation from 1987 to 1994.

From 1994 to 2002, he also portrayed Picard in the films Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002).
