Burnley go claret and yellow

Last updated : 04 May 2006 By Tony Scholes

The 1998/99 season, the first season under Stan Ternent's management, saw us play in a virtually all claret strip and it is one we have worn so often away from home this season when the away kit has come out just twice, at Crewe and Aston Villa.

I'm very much a traditionalist when it comes to the home shirt kit and so am pleased to see the end of the blue bar across the front of the shirt and although it is not quite what I would call a traditional Burnley shirt I do like it, and I think with the new shorts and socks it looks good.

As for the away kit, I'm not too sure, and taking a first look at it I hope it is used as infrequently as the away kit was this season. There's every chance that unless Barnsley win promotion it won't have to be used at all.

The new shirts will carry the logo “I'll always be a claret” as opposed to the “More than 90 minutes” and it will also, above the club badge, show two stars (yellow on the home kit, claret on the away kit) which represent out two Championship wins in 1920/21 and 1959/60 seasons.

The home kit will be available from the club shop, and online, from early June and the away kit from early July – click HERE to pre-order your shirts online.
