Syngenta Juveniles are marking 60 years in existence this year with a new club badge.
The roaring lion in the club’s orange and black colours will debut next season marking the club’s move into a seventh decade.
Today’s club is a far cry from that initial boys team set up by four dye workers as ICI Juveniles and today the club can boast football provisions for boys, girls and also kids with Cerebral Palsy.
The Dyes have also achieved SFA Legacy Quality Mark and has a player pathway into adult football with the club’s junior team in the East Region Premier League South – they’re the longest running football club in Grangemouth.
The name has changed since formation – ICI became Astra Zeneca in the 90s and then changed to Syngenta just after the millennium in November 2000 however the essence and history of the club remain.
The 60th anniversary would have been very different but for the unique situation it finds itself in but through Zoom calls and social platforms, the club have launched the new crest, replacing the lion rampant on a black shield.
It will be displayed on a new bespoke anniversary kit to celebrate the 60th season.
