York City unveil new home and away kits

York Press: York City trio Jake Hyde, Jason Mooney and Russell Penn model the new kit York City trio Jake Hyde, Jason Mooney and Russell Penn model the new kit

YORK City’s new home kit will go on sale at Saturday’s pre-season friendly at home to Sheffield Wednesday, kick-off 3pm, writes Dave Flett.

The club have also changed their away strip for next season with summer signing Jake Hyde and skipper Russell Penn modelling the designs.

Manufactured by Nike, the home top has a granddad-shirt collar, while the away shirt is sky blue and white.

The Minstermen will wear the new home kit against the Owls and it can be bought from 11am to 7pm at the club shop or, from 11am to 3pm, during Sunday’s Family Fun Day at Bootham Crescent.

Last season’s main sponsors Benenden Health have renewed their commitment to the club for another year and Synergy Cleaning will also continue as back-of-shirt sponsors.

Ryedale-based Helmsley Computers, meanwhile, have taken over as back-of- short sponsors.

On the decision to change strips, communications director Sophie Hicks said: “These are really exciting times at York City as the club looks to maintain the momentum from last season’s play-off push.

“This is really the first time Nigel Worthington has been able to properly assemble his own squad of players and, with eight new players in the squad, it feels appropriate to start the season in a new kit.”

No navy blue in the home kit is a big shame. We had red / navy from 1978 until the McGills started messing about with the kit. They've now told us red / white is traditional. Well all the clubs merchandise needs to be revamped then.

"traditional" doesn't mean much when your colours change as frequently as City's have over the years.

It was red and white when I started going to games, then it was maroon and white for a while, then white and maroon.

The tradition of red and blue only arose when Charlie Wright picked it because he liked Bolton Wanderers second strip.

Red and Blue was ok but i can't get too excited about it.

I like these new strips and the corpulent bank account will likely be depleted this weekend as Fat Harriet and I go large.

i also like the red shirt and blue shorts but as previously said weve had many changes of colours over the years,i believe once upon a time we evn had chocolate shirts and white shorts.a bit silly using it as yet another stick to beat the McGills with is getting a bit desperate,things must be on the upturn for our great club finally if thats the worst thing we have to complain about regards our chairman and board.

A former nickname of YCFC was "The Robins" (at about the same time as "The Happy Wanderer" was te club song) denoting red and white as the basic colours. Red shirs with white trimmings and white shorts was the first kit I remember (late 1950s) with the away kit being white shirts with red trim and, I think, black shorts.

I also remember struggling to get a replica of City's socks for that period, black with red and white tops (like the old Manchester United strip). Malton's sports shop (Anderson's for any older Malton readers)didn't have any so I wore two pairs: a pair of black socks with white tops (old Spurs strip) over a pair of red and white hooped socks. The tops of the under pair were then turned over the lower pair to complete the effect. By the way, I also used old copies of Charles Buchan's Football Monthly as shinpads because I couldn't afford proper ones!

On the subject of the away kit, I always thought the green one of a few years ago was smart.

The kits look superb - but navy socks on the home strip would've been good too. Looking forward to getting mine on Saturday

I'll miss the dash of navy blue but an improvement on that insipid royal(ish) blue we've had for the last couple of years or so. Looked too much like Dagenham & R, Aldershot et al for comfort. Fortunately we have a better team than anything those 2 could muster.

I'm all for change - let's move on from the old and dark days - we have started a new era - therefore I go with change. It may not be solely down to the Board, I believe Nigel also has a say as to what he wants. He could have gone blue and white strips or yellow and green!!!!

That simple maroon and white kit (circa 1971) was awesome! Then we spoiled it with the big 'Y', before going to red and blue.

Check yer city history pal... I recall the 'old and dark' days of the 83/84 season with those navy coloured shorts. After all, there's no blue in our club badge (and the one before it)... or is there?
