Two recommended sites

Posted by John Devlin

There’s nothing better than reading about a club’s kit history according to its supporters. Although I (and others around the web) do my best to document past strips as best we can, to get opinions and memories from fans who live and breathe their team and attend matches week in week out adds a little extra.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the following two sites that have kept me highly entertained in the past few weeks:

www.unitedkits.com
Put together by Manchester United fans Paul Nagel and Tim Ashmore this site is simply brilliant! It features a very detailed record of every kit worn by Man Utd since their formation including all variants and anomalies that cropped up along the way (often on a match by match basis). Beautifully illustrated the site is very easy to use and presents the reams of information in an excellent way. If you’re a United fan or just a kits anorak you will spend many happy hours on this site.

This Hull City fansite has been put together by Tigers devotee Les Motherby who clearly knows his kits as there’s a section where reviews a range of past Hull outfits. Irreverant and sometimes tongue in cheek the reviews give an interesting fan’s perspective on a club with more than their fair share of ‘challenging’ strips.

    Even though I’m an Arsenal fan, I’m a regular visitor to unitedkits.com to check for updates, I have to say it’s a great site!

    The details on the Hull site are great too, I love the pic of Vennegoor of Hesselink’s shirt!

    And Hull’s latest home kit is a cracker!
