Oxford United Shirt 1988

Primary Colours and Away Variations

Although Oxford United had dropped out of the top tier of English football, their contract with Umbro ensured one more season with a fashionable kit supplier.

The shirts differed slightly from 1987 shirts in that they had the stripes positioned differently. The widest white stripe was now in the centre of the shirt, whereas the 1987 shirts had the middle of the three yellow stripes in this position. Such attention to detail was not afforded to the fans replica kit, with most replica shirt stripes not even positioned symmetrically or matching front and back.

The crest now simply read “Oxford United”, this text now also appeared on the navy shorts crest.




Third Colours

Now in its forth season, the white change kit became a third choice.

Change Colours

Oxford United returned to their familiar all red change colours, with a smart design with interesting detailing.

This shirt was well received with supporters and was often used away from the Manor ground even when a change of colours was not really required.

Borrowed Kit

For the away fixtures at Plymouth Argyle and West Bromwich Albion, Oxford United packed their navy shorts, but were requested to change due to a colour clash.

This resulted in Oxford having to wear ‘away’ shorts borrowed from their opponents. Thankfully, on both occasions the shorts were white and coincidentally made by Umbro.
