About Us

We are working with local sports clubs in and around the UK supplying training wear, leisurewear and playing kit. We are keen to speak with anyone currently involved in Rugby League, Rugby Union, Netball, Football, Rowing & Cycling as we feel that we have products which will enable you to perform on game day.

Working with our in-house designers we are able to design a completely bespoke one-off kit, manufactured and delivered within 4 weeks. Our aim at 1895 Sports is to provide you with a service that you would expect from a kit supplier that has your club, and you as an individual, at the core of its design process. We do not want you turning up to play against a team that wears the same kit as you, because your current supplier doesn’t offer bespoke designed kit. So, we will not make you a kit that any other team already has. Our ethos is to offer products priced right, delivered on time and to your requirements, without any hassle.


Founded in 2014 by sport enthusiasts, 1895 Sports are passionate about all sports. Our heritage is in Rugby League as our co-joint owner is Mike Cooper, current Super League player with Wigan Warriors and England RL, but our focus is very much about assisting you, the players, coaches and parents enjoy your sport.

Mike is currently playing for Wigan Warriors RL and England RL, as a Prop forward and has been influential in marketing the company by utilising his experience within a sports team based environment.

Sam Wareing – Managing Director

Sam worked in the sports business, starting out with a retail shop in Warrington selling rugby league shirts from all over the world, as well as having a specialist running shop. It was here that his journey with teamwear started, and he found himself dealing directly with factories who were manufacturing for some of the biggest brands in the sports world. Outside of this, Sam is a big Burnley FC fan and also enjoys taking in the odd Warrington Town FC game too.
