Marlon King, Tommy Smith and Jobi McAnuff launched this season's new home and away kits this week and it won't be long before you can get your hands on a replica kit of your own.

The trio struck a pose in the new home and away kits while Mart Poom and Richard Lee modelled the goalkeeper's jerseys. Watford have reverted back to the famous yellow shirts, black shorts and yellow socks , first worn by the Glory Horns in 1959, while the all red away kit harps back to the promotion season of 2005-06.

New signing McAnuff said: "I actually really like them both. It's an honour to be asked to model them, but all any player wants to do is pull it on for real ahead of the first game of the season."

Kit manufacturers Diadora have pinpointed three key attributes relating to the new shirts - the weight, comfort and how it reacts with heat and humidity. The shirt was designed using advanced body mapping techniques to create a dynamic anatomical shape to enhancing performance.

The hem on the back has been dropped to make it proportionally longer than the front part, helping minimise discomfort and remove excess friction and obstruction. In terms of weight, it is 10 per-cent lighter than last year thus enabling less drag and allowing ease of movement and more comfort. The fabric transports moisture away from the body thanks to the mesh ventilation panels which help to regulate a player's temperature. These maximise airflow to the body and allow natural convection to regulate the player's temperature. When a player runs, air is channelled in through the lower ventilation panels at the back and then distributed over the torso through the front mesh contrast panels.

Wearing the home kit, Tommy Smith spoke about the season ahead and doing the new shirt justice: "I think we've got a great chance of promotion this season. We've got the right people in place from the coaching staff to the players. Now it's just down to us to go out there and produce the goods. "I'll be looking forward to playing the two other teams who were relegated alongside us last season. We'll be the team that everyone else will want to put to the sword.

" The new away kit will be available from the Buzz store from July 14 with the home kit going on sale on August 4. Both of the goalkeeper's kits can be purchased from July 28, with training wear available from August 18. Prices have not been increased with adults short sleeved shirts priced at GBP 35 with long sleeved at GBP 40. The goalkeeper's jerseys will also be priced at GBP 40. Children's shirts start at £25 for short sleeves with long sleeved being picked up for GBP 30. Pre orders for the away kit are already being taken now with delivery set for July 14.
