Poppy Shirt

The 2016 remembrance weekend again saw teams across the country wearing commemorative poppy shirts.  Once again, Oxford United  had an away fixture, this time at Shrewsbury Town.

All match shirts and match balls were sold at auction to help raise money for the Royal British Legion.













    



Change Colours and Variations

The 2016 change colours were a ‘reverse’ colour combination of the home strip.

The contrasting shoulder and rib panels were identical styling to the goalkeeper jerseys.


Primary Colours and Away Variations

American sports retailer Starter featured on the 2016/17 kits. Their name first appeared on the shirts worn at Wembley the previous season after Starter became involved  as a ‘retail partner’.

My critique of this kit is rather biased, as it is my design!  During the 2014 season the club had run a social media campaign to gauge opinion from fans regarding their favourite former kits.

I studied the feedback from the fans and submitted a design that combined features of the fans most popular former kits.

The pinstripes and v-neck collar were a modern interpretation of the early 1980’s shirts, whilst the sleeves were the same as the 94-95 seasons. The front panel of the shirt was a lighter hue of yellow when compared to the back panel and sleeves.

Liontrust and Polythene UK continued with their sponsorship and were joined by Alycidon Capital who were the rear shorts sponsor.

The undershirt base layers were now blue, as rules state they must be the same colour as the main colour of the shirt sleeve. I thought yellow would have been a more appropriate choice, but I guess ‘rules are rules’.

No long sleeved shirt.


Sky Bet League One Patch

To date, Oxford United have never been able to wear a home poppy shirt, as the remembrance weekend has always coincided with away fixtures plus a requirement to wear change colours.

For the clubs armed forces day, the players wore black armbands with a poppy motif.

Oxford United Kit 2016 Goalkeeper Oxford United Kit 2016 Goalkeeper

For the home fixture against Scunthorpe the goalkeepers were incorrectly wearing the blue strip, which clashed with Scunthorpe’s sky blue shirts and socks.

The kick-off was delayed whilst this was hastily rectified. For the first half Simon Eastwood wore blue socks. Matching green socks were found for the second half.

2017/18 Kit

For the final game of the season, Oxford United released their 2017/18 home kit.

This is something that other clubs have been doing for several years. However, it was the first time that Oxford United had been commercially organised to be able to take advantage of the rule which permits this kit change for the final home fixture.

The idea is that clubs will benefit from retail sales as supporters will be keen to show-off the teams latest apparel whilst away on their summer holidays.
