Scunthorpe United released a new third kit that will be worn in competitive action by the team for the first time at the away fixture against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
In recognition of sporting icon, Sir Ian Botham, being appointed as the Iron’s new President, the red home kit worn by the club in the late 70’s and early 80’s was put forward in the supporters vote as an option as a new home kit for the 18/19 season. Although the kit did not win the home kit vote, it received a significant number of votes and positive comments from supporters, with many suggesting they would like to see it as an alternative to the home shirt.
As a result, the red option was confirmed as a third kit for the 2018-19 season and it will be worn in away fixtures where the Iron are unable to wear their yellow and navy away kit, starting with this Saturday’s away fixture against the Dons.
The FBT designed shirt is red with white trim and a white collar, with red shorts and red socks. The shirts will feature our main club partners Rainham Steel on the front, Vanilla.tech on the reverse and Pepperells Solicitors on the shorts.
