Oxford United Home Kit 1989

Primary Colours

Oxford United began a two year period with Scoreline supplying the kits.

The yellow was now a darker gold colour, with a subtle ‘brush effect’ repeating pattern within the fabric. The V-necks seen over the past 7 years were gone, with the shirts now sporting a predominately white rounded collar.

The long sleeved shirts featured red embroidery for the detailing in the club crest, whereas the short sleeved shirts had yellow embroidery.

There was a return to yellow (or gold) socks.

Change Colours

A dark crimson red change strip was adopted, identical in style to the home kit.

Sponsored Shirts

After several months without a sponsor, chairman Kevin Maxwell put his Pergamon Press company back onto the Oxford United shirts (from 16th December 1989).

The sponsor’s logo featured an ancient Greek coin from the city of Pergamon, this coin motif provided a number of variations to the player issued shirts.

The long sleeved shirts had the coin motif above the Pergamon name. Initially, all of the short sleeved shirts had a smaller coin motif positioned below the Pergamon name. As the season progressed a number of short sleeved shirts appeared with the smaller version positioned above the name. All 3 variants would appear alongside each other in the same matches.

Around the same time, socks began to appear with an Oxford United club crest and Scoreline logo embroidered on the sides. These socks were often paired with an older sock, or worn inside-out with the embroidered backing visible.

Wrong Shirt

For the away match at Port Vale, the 1988 ‘Wang’ Umbro shirts were worn with the Scoreline shorts and socks.

The reason for these shirts making an unexpected reappearance mid-season is unknown.

Sponsored Shirts (Change Colours)

Just like the yellow shirts, the red away shirts also featured variations to the sponsors lettering.

At Portsmouth, Lee Nogan and Steve Foster wore long sleeved shirts which featured the sponsors name printed in white. These odd shirts do not appear to have featured in any other match.

Also at Portsmouth, the team wore the old Umbro navy socks from the previous seasons home kit.
