Away kit

Recommended Posts

Oh gawd, B4 will be apoplectic if he sees us playing in red, but the picture with Archie has him in dark shorts, would they have been black or red ? 

I only ask because they look darker than the shirt and socks in that picture.

No mystery. This was Derbys away kit during the 1976/77 season.

They played many games in this shirt and yes the badge was in the middle.

What was the colour then? I'm interest to see how close my recreation got. And do you have a link to this? 

Cheers

EDIT: Just seen later posts showing bright red kit. Poor attempt by the machine learning algorithms in that case!

Red shirt and blue Home shorts, I think Leeds were yellow then and we we had white Home and yellow away shirts so needed the third kit.

there is a photo from 72 I think we’re derby wore blue shirts and Leeds wore red but they were the old round neck shirts

I'm just more amazed you've found an image of Hales celebrating a goal - now that is a rarity.

Interestingly enough, you can pretty much deduce (I hope) that this was Colchester away in the FA Cup. The only other goal he scored away from home was at Brizzle, where I think it would have been unlikely for us to wear red.

Oooh, I've come over all Sherlock......

Did you see this amazing colorisation that I found, fantastic work ! Really brings the old picture we have all seen a million times to life !

I didn't know this was computer produced, it looks very realistic even down to the well used white turning to grey sock tops, the only thing I would debate is the keeper's jersey as I believe FA rules stated the keepers jersey should be green, red, blue or white unless the rule came in after this date. Yellow was only used for international games.

I remember that from the time, not understanding the kit choices at all!

They should bring back those little flag things with the player's number on to hold their socks up. They were great (said in a Tony the Tiger voice".
