It’s the oldest strip in our online poll and now Cliftonville’s Yellow & Blue ensemble from 1990-1993 has booked its place in the last 16 of our Away Kit Battle.
All jerseys which missed out in the opening phase are being given a shot at redemption and, after landing 67% of this weekend’s vote, the Spall strip is safely through at the second time of asking.
All of which means that its competitor – the Green & Navy stripes from 1995/96 – has been beaten again but, as part of our effort to ensure that no kit falls victim to mere misfortune of the draw, it could yet qualify for the next round by virtue of the number of votes it received in comparison with its fellow defeated strips throughout July.
As we bid to compile the definitive list of the Club’s best and worst away kits of the last 30 years, everyone will naturally have their own favourite efforts and, with just a few days to wait until our next second chance saloon, have you decided which strip you’d vote for out of any given combination?
