Can anyone think of any team other than St Mirren, wearing striped shorts?

Brighton did the whole deckchair-striped kit a few years ago.

I think the two photos on this thread are self explanatory as to why striped shorts are such a rarity. Shocked

I have always liked the "two hooped" shirts, as shown by Northampton above, and I believe used by Chelmsford City at the same time.
Hillingdon Borough had a similar style for a while, with two dark blue hoops, and the central portion light blue on an otherwise white shirt.

I have to say Glenafton Athletic's tartan shirt from the early 1990s takes some beating in the bad taste stakes.

http://www.oldfootballshirts.com/...ll-shirt-s31524.html

Sports Division was established by New Cumnock boy, the billionaire philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter. I imagine when he sponsored the shirt Glens couldn't really say "no".

Made even worse by the awful shirts. Banbury played in white tops so perhaps the ref ordered the change but I'd never seen them wearing washed-out sweatshirts as a second strip.

For a few seasons until 1970 Banbury wore this in red with yellow hoops, the reverse for the away kit.

Re: [Mr. T] Striped shorts [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Not relevant to this thread, I know, but why did Banbury change from red and yellow to blue and white then back again? Surely too early for sponsors at that time? Looking at my programme collection, Banbury used red/yellow and blue/white covers at various times but they didn't always correspond to the shirt colours. Very confusing.... but I'm sure there's a simple explanation.

Banbury appear to be wearing a men's nightwear combination from M&S.

Banbury's colours were red and yellow from early on in their days as Spencer, the shirts being 'halves' until the hoops of the 60s. They changed to white shirt and blue shorts in 1970, with the stripes worn in 72-74. The shirts went to blue and white halves in the 1990s and then back to red and yellow in 1998.

I'm not sure that you're correct to say that the colours of programme covers and kits didn't match but I do have the vaguest memory of Banbury having to change in a home game because the opposition came with a clashing kit.

Re: [Mr. T] Striped shorts [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

You are right about progs and strips, but I think things aren't quite as simple as your dates above: I have red and yellow progs from 1982-83 and 1983-84 which list their colours as all yellow and gold/red/gold respectively. 1985-86 and 1986-87 - blue prog, all white strip. Then progs for 1987-88, 1988-89 and 1989-90 with strip given as white/blue/red. Confusing, but very interesting.

Is the Northampton player John Gregory?
This was played a few weeks after I attended my first ever football match, Northampton v. Peterborough in the Northants Senior Cup, also a midweek daytime game, due to the power crisis.

They did that for us at Northwood when we visited there in 06/07. Banbury used their all white 2nd kit while we stayed with our all red. Unfortunately both Northwood's kits clashed with Banbury's 1st (1st all red, 2nd all yellow against Banbury's red/yellow/red) at the time. If you had seen the debacle of a colour clash when we visited them in 05/06 you would have understood, Banbury played in red/yellow/red, Northwood wore yellow/red/yellow. It was horrible to watch.



Northwood, Threave Rovers, Arsenal, Rangers (the real ones, NOT qpr),Watford, Rochdale, queen of the south and a few others.

I thought Billy Best had a beard. Why was Phil Neal playing at centre forward?

This must be one of the best, if not the best, photos from the 1970's that I've seen anywhere. That game was played almost exactly ten years before my only visit to the County Ground for football (a Sunday game in December 1983) and it might be safe to say that fashions changed more in these ten years than they have done in the last twenty years.

BB there are photos of him without one.
PN I wrote down in my programme the numbers as they were announced. I hope they're correct. He wasn't famous then so it wouldn't have occurred to us to question it! Perhaps Northampton were ahead of their time in the numbering of their players...

Bristol Rovers had striped shorts in the 1960s, but I think that it was a training kit not used in competitive matches; I certainly don't remember them playing in striped shorts, but they had blue and white striped shirts then.

Again, not stripes but Scotland wore hooped shorts at the 1986 WC
