In the early days of the Football League in England, Scotland and Wales, there was a huge variety of colours used by teams, in colours that would have been considered extraordinary today. In recent times, some teams have been going back to those times for inspiration for change or first kits. And there are no shortage of colours from which to pick.
For this comp, the idea is to bring these old colours back, either a faithful recreation of the old kit for today, or using a new design with colours from yesteryear. For the inspiration, it can be any kit featured on http://historicalkits.co.uk before 1918.
The Rules -
1 - kits must be based on those worn before 1918
2 - Sponsorship is allowed on shirts, and logos are allowed on the shorts and socks. Only one sponsor is allowed on shirt. Player numbers are allowed on backs of shirts, front of shirts, and sock tags. Player names are allowed on back of shirts, and player initials are allowed on shorts
3 - a picture of the original kit from Historicalkits.co.uk must be included with your design.
For the design, the shirt can follow the original as closely as desired. The closing date of the competition will be June 22 12.00pm.
Update - 23/6/12 - The competition is now closed. The winner(s) will be announced shortly.
Update - 1/7/12 - Spider has chosen his competition winners. There were so many entries and of such a high standard that he elected to choose one English winner and one Scottish.
