This was to be the very first season Oxford United wore their now familiar yellow and blue colours. It’s worth noting that the club badge and the match day programme cover remained yellow and black, which could suggest that blue was not necessarily going to be permanent.
The introduction of blue was possibly to differentiate Oxford from the obvious similarities to Wolves and Hull. Blue stripes had traditionally featured in the clubs kits when it was named Headington United.
The kits were manufactured by Umbro, who were at that time supplying teams such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Spurs.
