Hall of Shame Vote: Which is the worst STFC kit?
For our public vote this month, the decision is yours to decide which Swindon Town kit deserves to be condemned to the Hall of Shame. The nominations are…
Kit A – 1981-89 Yellow & Blue away
While Oxford United enjoyed their crook fueled football throughout the mid 1980s Town sought to emulate our neighbours with a yellow and blue away kit. The various Oxford-esque kits were eventually phased down to the 3rd kit for two season from 1989, and fortunately has never been seen since.
Kit B – 1991-93 Green away
This kit was worn by Glenn Hoddle’s successful side, however this potato print green and white away kit still makes my eyes water. It also made an international list of the 20 worst football kits of all time, but does it get your vote..?
Kit C – 1993-95 ‘Brazil’ away
Town moved through the shades of yellow and stopped at that used – at the time – by the Brazilian national team, in a somewhat desperate attempt to dazzle our Premier League opposition. Problem was it didn’t work as Town only picked up two points wearing the kit that season, albeit those points were gained at Liverpool and Arsenal…
Kit D – 1995-97 Home kit
A memorable and unique shirt as worn in our Division Two Championship winning side of 1995/96, however Mizzuno’s design flaw saw the players getting hot under the tight collar and heavy fabric that stuck to you.
Kit E – 1999-00 Home kit
The decline in fortunes in the pitch was matched by this woeful design that just looked and felt cheap. Not only was it too light a shade of red, but the flock print Lotto lettering and Nationwide logo faded and peeled off. The only saving grace was the return of the white shorts.
Kit F – 2003-04 Black & Gold away
Swindon’s partnership with manufacturer Strikeforce yielded many poor kits but this black and gold colour away kit from the 2003/04 season was by far the worst of the bunch.
Kit G – 2007-08 Kingswood home shirt
This shirt was awful quality by Lotto, with a non-traditional use of six white segments and the sponsor name washed off on most. Also Kingswood Construction went bust halfway through the season, forcing the club to cancel their sponsorship deal leaving many fans to consign this kit to the bin.
VOTE FOR YOUR CHOICE BELOW…
The poll closes 8pm Thursday 23rd February and your worst STFC kit will be inducted into the Hall of Shame this Saturday, just in time for you to dust it off and wear it at the Accrington game…
**Anyone asking for the white kit in 2009/10 will be reminded that kit wasn’t all that bad and the issue there was the decision to wear it in the first place… Don’t fear as a place is reserved in the HoS for that decision**
