A brand new club crest was introduced, featuring the now familiar Ox that is still present today. This simplified design of a Minoan bull was created by club director Desmond Morris, who was also a renowned zoologist and author in human sociobiology.

Home Kit

Long
sleeves

Once again the Admiral shirts saw subtle changes to those worn the previous season.

The flared and pointed collars that featured in 1978 were given a less obtrusive cut and the colours on the v-neck were reversed.

The long sleeved shirts also featured a different design of cuffs.

Away Kit

Long
sleeves

A new all red change strip was introduced, which was near identical to the England change strip of the time.

It differed to the previous red Admiral shirts in that the contrasting colours on the sleeves was much narrower.
