Primary Colours and Away Variation

This was to be the last of 5 seasons that TFG produced Oxford United's kits. Firoz Kassam sold the club (but not the stadium) to a consortium of businessmen headed by former manager Jim Smith. Despite Jim Smith’s previous success at Oxford, he was unable to prevent the club dropping out of the Football League.

A new TFG home kit was introduced, with the previous seasons yellow shorts and socks often paired with the new shirts.

Indeed, the clubs official ‘first choice’ colours were only worn once away from the Kassam stadium.

For reasons unknown, the all yellow combination was also worn for the final home game of the season. Sadly, this match resulted in Oxford United’s relegation from the football league.

After using the same style of lettering for 6 years, the football league changed the style of lettering and numbers to a much bolder and unique design. This design remained in use 2005 - 2015.

Change Colours

The previous seasons black change kit was retained, however for this season it would only feature in its ‘all black’ form.

Embarrassingly, Oxford United twice had to wear their opponents kit during this season (details below).

Oxford United Kit at Barnet


Opponents Kit - Barnet, Away

Oxford United had planned to wear black shirts and white (2004) shorts, believing that Barnet would be wearing their traditional combination of orange shirts with black shorts. Barnet had registered these colours with the football league, and indeed they had worn this colour combination during their pre-season friendlies.

However, in a most unusual move, Barnet swapped their home and change colours just 2 days before the start of the league campaign. This important detail appeared to have been poorly communicated, resulting in Oxford United bringing a near identical colour combination to the match.

Oxford where asked to wear Barnet’s reserve team orange shirts, paired with their own white shorts. Presumably the red socks where mustered from Barnet's change kit they had used the previous season.

Opponents Kit - Boston United, Away

The away match at Boston was always going to be a tricky one for Oxford United, as neither their yellow or black shirts were really suitable for the trip to York Street.

Oxford United sort advice prior to the fixture, (reportedly from the match referee Mick Russell) and it was agreed that United would wear their all yellow strip.

However, once at the ground, the referee had a change of mind and decided that Oxford’s yellow shirts were too similar to Boston’s gold and black hooped shirts.

With Oxford also arriving late due to traffic problems, Boston’s white and blue youth team kit was hastily found for Oxford United to wear.
