Southampton unveil new away kit

New, comment

It's a bit out there, but we at St. Mary's Musings quite like it!

As the 2015-16 Premier League fixtures announcement looms, all of the league's clubs are starting to reveal what kits their teams will be sporting next season. <!-- ######## START FLOATED VIDEO SNIPPET ######## -->

Southampton are no different. After showing off their new home strip, the Saints have now unveiled their new away kit.

It's a bit garish: I can confirm the green in the photo is a bit misleading as it's a hell of a lot brighter. I'm not sure if that was a deliberate marketing ploy to reduce any potential fan backlash - but, I can assure you it's a luminous green.

This new away strip does away with the tradition of our yellow away kits and the recent fad of black/navy away colours. But, it does provide a return for the sash: which we haven't seen since Saints' successful League One promotion season in back in 2010-11.

The special 125 year anniversary strip is one of Southampton's highest-selling kits in the club's history so I'm sure plenty of people will be happy at the news.
