Daily Echo:

SAINTS have revealed their new kits for next season and it includes a 1980s throwback home shirt.

It's been the worst kept secret of late that Saints' second Under Armour strip would include a red and white shirt that takes inspiration from the legendary shirt worn by the likes of Kevin Keegan and Mick Channon in the 1980s.

As with the kit that was donned during from 1980 to 1985, it features a wide white stripe down the front and rear of the shirt with red sides and sleeves.

To go with that new top, the home strip includes blacks shorts and white socks - both with red trim.

While the home shirt is the centrepiece of this latest launch, the club have also dropped their brand new away strip and goalkeeper kits.

The changed colour features teal and black stripes.

“We are always proud to present the latest edition of the kit, and we think the eye-catching retro design will capture the imaginations of fans young and old," David Thomas, Saints' commercial director, said.

The new kits are available to pre-order now and will be available to purchase on 30th June from the Saints official club store and website southamptonfc.com.
