And the reaction has been extremely positive, with supporters clearly liking the substantial nod to Sir Bobby Robson’s UEFA Cup-winning side of 1980/81.

A major change has seen the return of the club’s iconic yellow badge for one season only, while the shirt will be worn with blue shirts as was the case during the second leg of the 1981 final with AZ Alkmaar.

The shirt is on sale immediately, priced at £48 for adults and £38 for children.

Also revealed was next season’s light green and black goalkeeper shirt which, like the home shirts, will feature the logo for the Carers Trust after the charity was gifted the sponsorship by Magical Vegas.

The away kits is likely to be released next week.

Town fans have been reacting to the new kits on social media, with a range of opinions below.
