Headington United were formed in 1893, fielding a variety of amateur teams who played on different days of the week. With black and white photographs it is difficult to accurately depict the kit colours, however, there are numerous team sheets and programmes which state "Orange and Navy". A brief overview of the known Headington United kits can be viewed on the homepage.
Headington United turned professional in 1949, when they were voted into the Southern League. From this point, the orange/navy was replaced with gold shirts and black shorts.
