Gillingham unveiled their brand new 2009/10 kit made by Vandanel.

Although Gillingham have long been associated with the colours blue and white, the original New Brompton side wore a strip consisting of black and white striped shirts with black shorts.

With the renaming of the club in 1913, the black and white strip was dropped in favour of red shirts with blue sleeves, emblazoned with the borough's coat of arms. The striped shirts returned after World War One, before finally being replaced with the now-familiar combination of plain blue shirts and white shorts in 1931.

More recent years have seen several variations on the blue and white colour scheme.

In the late 1990s the team wore blue and black striped shirts, recalling the original New Brompton stripes.

In the summer of 2003 it was controversially announced that the club's first choice shirts for the following season would be predominantly white, rather than blue.

The announcement received such a hostile response from supporters that the white strip was replaced by one featuring blue and black hoops, which had originally been earmarked as the team's third choice kit.

The new home and away replica kits is on sale in the GFC Megastore. In addition to the new playing kit, the Gills new training wear is also on sale at the GFC megastore.

Yeah, guess so, but it would have been nice for them to play in black and Royal blue stripes, as its unique in English football and if it was adopted, then the gills would have an instantly reconisable colour scheme for English football
