Primary Colours and Away Variation

Newly promoted Oxford United made light work of Division 2, and also made history, becoming the first English club to ever win promotion as champions in successive seasons.

In essence, the kits remained unchained from the previous two seasons, but there was several differences.

Most notably there was another variation to the sponsors lettering, with the shirts now featuring blue iron-on characters. The shirt crest was wrapped in text commemorating the Division III championship. More subtly, the shirts no longer featured a Spall motif on the sleeves.

The shorts now featured shadow pinstripes, plus a small Spall motif.

Change Colours

The third choice kit from the 83/84 season was the template for a new all-white change kit.

This particular variation only featured once.

Sponsor Change

From mid October, another Robert Maxwell business, the Sunday People newspaper became the primary shirt sponsor.

It would be easy to think the Sunday People logo was applied on-top of the BPCC lettering of the existing match-shirts. However, these were a brand-new set of shirts, which differed to the earlier shirts as they now featured screen-printed ‘block-shadow’ shirt numbers.

TV Shirt

Even though the authorities now permitted shirt sponsorship for televised games, there was a stipulation that a club could only have one sponsor featured on TV per season.

Thus, the new Sunday People shirts could not be worn in the numerous televised games that Oxford United featured in. This was not a problem for Robert Maxwell, who was able to give further TV exposure to his BPCC company.

Interestingly, the short-lived shirts featuring blue BPCC letters used at the very start of this campaign never featured for the TV matches. Instead the older 1983/84 shirts with black lettering were worn.
