It's the time of year that York City supporters really look forward to wether young or old, the unavailing of the new kit. I waited with anticiption for noon to come and the chance to see our new look. I can only speak for myself and not other Cliffe Minstermen but the kit is............... One of the worst I have seen York City choose. It is awful. The grandad collar is it's never been a good fashion look never mind on a football shirt. The shorts are for someone of my generation supporting York City the wrong colour although I bow to other fans who for them white shorts are a massive part of the clubs history. This in turn makes the red socks the wrong colour as well. Again red socks play a part in our history but for this supporter who started going in early 88 the kit should be red shirts, navy shorts and white socks. The trouble is that through are history we have had 2 real sets of colours maroon and white, and red, white and blue in various combinations. It really makes it a lottery for fans who have nostalgia for various strips that mean something to them. As you can see from our badge of the Cliffe Minstermen we hark back to maroon and white Y front kit. I do believe though maroon and white should be are away colours rather than the light blue ones we tend to have or any other colour for that matter as we have had most of them through our history . If you stick to a nostalgic away colour you could then sell a range of merchendise to accompany it. I have always felt York City miss a trick on things like that. I appreciate that football kits can be like marmite and this time it's my turn to be very disappointed but there will be plenty of City fans who love the new look and fair play to them.
