I was delighted to be asked by Sunderland to work with them on adding their kit history to the relaunch of the club’s official site.
The new site went live recently and now features a complete set of True Colours illustrations and text for all of the Black Cats kits since the late 70s.

Well, I say all – there is still one Sunderland kit that eludes me. Its the club’s amber third kit from the Patrick era of the late 80s. I know they wore the outfit against Wigan in the Mercantile Credit Festival/Football League Centenary Feitival at Wembley in 1988 where they drew 0-0 but I just can’t find a decent photo of it. If you can help with a photo or if you’re just able to let me know what it looked like then please contact me.
