A Halifax football team has paid tribute to those killed in the New Zealand terror attack by changing their logo to a silver fern.

FC Panda formerly known as Halifax Hammers were crowned champions of the Halifax Sunday League Premier league recently and have now adopted the silver fern as their new logo.

The club have reached three finals this season and on course to make it a fourth.

The club emailed New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, stating, “To the New Zealand Prime Minister and people, we the Halifax Hammers (FC Panda’s previous name) who play in the Halifax Sunday League, West Yorkshire, England, are a multicultural team that have been playing for the last 25 years.

“In recognition of yourself and the New Zealand public our new kit logo has been changed in support of the lives that were lost in the New Zealand terrorist attacks.

“Our love, support and prayers are with you and the New Zealand public. We are by your side.”

The Prime Minister’s office replied,  “Thank you so much for your email to the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, telling her about your new kit logo in support of the lives lost so tragically in Christchurch last month.

“Your support and kind words are appreciated very much.”
