Home Kit & Away Variations

Long
sleeves

The Umbro kits remained largely unchanged from the previous season. The main difference was the addition of the word ‘Computers’ to the sponsors logo. The shirt numbers now featured a small Umbro diamond at the base of the numerals.

The yellow shorts were a much better colour match compared to the previous season, but the yellow socks remained bright yellow.

Away Kit

No long
sleeves

Thankfully, the smart all white change strip featured in more matches during this campaign.

The 86/87 versions of these shirts included the new styled sponsors logo and the plain club crest.

Third Kit

In April, a sky-blue kit made an unexpected debut at Southampton.

Being introduced so late in the season, (and with no obvious colour clash), it is presumed to have been a prototype away kit for possible use the following season. However, this kit only ever featured for this one match,

The colour was similar to England's popular third kits at that time. Indeed, England had the same shirts (with a white Umbro motif) but they were never to feature in first team action.

Both long and short sleeved shirts were provided.
