Our Away Kit Battle’s Second Chance Saloon closes its doors this weekend, with a final pair of previously-defeated jerseys going head-to-head in the hope of a reprieve.
A total of 14 strips are already safely through to the next phase of our project to determine Cliftonville’s best reverse ensemble of the last 30 years but, to ensure no kit misses out through sheer misfortune of our opening draw, we’re offering some stays of execution – continuing with the green effort from the turn of the century going up against the infamous all-purple get-up.
The motivation behind your vote rests entirely with you. Perhaps it was the away strip the Reds wore in your first season following them across the land, or maybe there’s a favourite player from that era who’s synonymous with a particular kit in your mind’s eye.
Did the team surge to trophy success while bedecked in a certain top or, from a purely aesthetical point of view, do you just happen to like the colour and design more than the others?
Whatever your reason, we want supporters young and old to play their part in helping us compile a definitive list that stretches all the way back to 1990.
Our poll closes at noon on Monday, so you’ve got the whole weekend to make a considered decision before clicking the button – and, with the defeated jersey which accumulates most votes handed a final shot at redemption, every contribution really does count!
Worn: 2000/01, 2001/02, 2002/03
Notes: A straightforward design which mimicked Cliftonville’s home strip at the time, this was the only reverse kit worn throughout the duration of Uhlsport’s association with the Club in the early 2000s.
