Well Bene looks chuffed but wee Joffrey is a Townie going by his facial expression.

He's just been told he'll be playing at right back.

Yep. It's fairly retro in that sense. If your 30 and above your more likely to have a fond opinion of it I reckon. Can we bring back the keeper top from 95/96 next?

I have images of Stevie Simpson wearing the top I'm thinking of. Or maybe the fact it was sponsored by Bingo has me misremembering!

Aye, the Kingsway one. Think there was a Mercat one before that, didnt have the swirls but same lighter shade of blue.

End of the day, the last 4 years worth of home kits have been dull at best.  Vive la difference!

Looking forward to the 25th anniversary top coming out in November.


Aye I think I’ll probably opt for purchasing that one.

I've got the tartan effort from the 90s and love it to be honest. 

Back panel ruins it for me on the new one.

Initially thought the back was the way it was so the squad number was easier to see/read but looking at it don’t see any reason why they couldn’t have made it the same all over.

Are the rovers colour not navy blue , red & white ?

Not as consistently as you'd think.

We were navy in the 50s, went with predominantly white shirts in the 60s, then fairly royal blue through the 70s and early 80s. Didnt go navy again until the mid 80s, then back to lighter blue through the early 90s, getting darker with the diadora tops but only really hitting Navy again in 95/96. The red piping is a fairly newish thing that didnt appear until those late 80s kits as well and kinda vanished again until the badge changed.

Na, our earliest kits were Royal blue and white. The red and navy didn’t come in until the 1900’s
