Southampton In The Black Again
Saints OS has presented the new away kit for the coming season.
The change strip for away matches will be predominantly black. The shirt is black with a shadow stripe and a smart red trim round the collar. The shorts are all black. The socks are in the red of the collar and complement the kit nicely.
Saints have presented the strip saying that it will be on available to pre-order for home delivery only on Tuesday 13th July. You can order via the Onl;ine Store or by the Mail Order Hotline - 0845 688 9433
Then at 9am on Friday 23rd July iit will become available at the Stadium Megastore and West Quay store. Prices will be held at last season's prices. Short sleeve for children at £30 and for adults it will be £40.
The away shirt will be sponsor free in the same way as the home kit is, to commemmorate the 125 year history of the club.
The colour goes back to the 2006/07 kit and the club feels that it will go down much better. Last time the black shirt sold well but it is felt that the fact there is no sponsor name on the new kit will help it sell better.
The club is sure that this shirt is one that the fans will wear not only at games but also when they go out on the town.
Myself I have already had two members of my family say that they want one. Seal of approval I guess as one must always obey the lady folk mustn't he.
