Many a club has had its fair share of utter howlers down the years, both in Britain and around the world, though rather than being truly dreadful most are a little questionable, off the wall, or just something you might raise an eyebrow to.

“We really wanted to replicate this iconic kit using a white base to give the third kit a distinctive look,” he said.

“With the introduction of a new 3D crest on all of this year’s shirts, it has really moved us on from where we were and lends itself to the modern shirt. In particular, the new crest has added that ‘up-to-date’ feel to the classic-looking third shirt.
