Swindon Town have released their new away kit this morning and like all good kit reveals, it appears to have divided the fan base.
The club are claiming it’s the first time they’ve played in a grey strip, which we’re not entirely sure is such a great selling point. It’s a pale grey shit with blocks of red on the arms and around the collar.
It’s certainly different from their previous away kit, but whether it’s going to be a big seller or not is another question.
There has been a tendency in recent years for clubs to steer away from the usual ‘go to’ colours of yellow or green for an away strip, with greys and blacks definitely coming into fashion much more.
Whether ‘fashion’ can be applied to such a shirt or not is another question, but there is a clear split in the reception of this shirt. Some of the Robins supporters seem happy to be parting with their money, whereas one or two others are not so taken with it.
Here are some of the best of their reactions from social media.
Not keen. Not keen at all.
Home one is good though

I like this. Have we got a 3rd kit for the first time we’re 3-0 at half time though?
