Primary Colours and Away Variation

The 83/84 season was to prove to be a wonderfully successful campaign for Oxford United.  Not only did the U’s secure promotion as Division 3 Champions, but also enjoyed a giant-killing League Cup run including 3 epic cup ties against Manchester United, which culminated in a memorable 2-1 win.

The official kit remained unchained from the previous season. However, there was to be several variations of shirt styles used,
so these particular shirts saw limited use.

Sponsor Variation

The Pergamon sponsored shirts were again used exclusively at the Manor ground for the majority (but not all) of the Division 3 matches.

These shirts saw less use in the second half of the season, as high flying Oxford became a popular choice for TV companies to feature in their highlights programmes. (see below)

Third Colours

With both the yellow and the red shirts causing a colour clash at Bradford and Newport, Oxford United introduced an all white third kit.

These shirts were not issued with a sponsor, but the design would go on to become the change colours for the next season.

Change Colours

The all red change kit remained unchanged from the 1982/83 season.

TV Shirt

TV companies finally relaxed their ban on football shirt sponsorship, but they did insist on sponsor logos being half of the size of that permitted by the FA.

Shirts with a smaller BPCC logo were produced and were worn mainly for the Milk Cup matches. However, the smaller BPCC logo was impossible to read from any distance and was certainly not distinguishable on a television screen.

TV Shirt Variation

The lack of clarity of the smaller BPCC logo (left) was not lost on Robert Maxwell, particularly as the club were enjoying prominent TV coverage with 3 games against Manchester United. A new set of shirts were provided, this time with plain bold black lettering.

These shirts made their debut in the second cup replay against Manchester United, and would continue to feature regularly over the next season and a half.
