Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman

Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman. The kit, which sees the Cobblers revert back to black for a change kit after the popularity of the 2005/2006 away strip, is once again manufactured by Vandanel.

Northampton Town was founded in 1897 after meetings between the town’s schoolteachers and local solicitor A.J. Darnell. At the time schoolboy football was strong in the county due in part to the enthusiasm of the local teachers. They were however dissatisfied with the current arrangement of arranged friendlies between schools preferring to teach the boys through practical examples and they felt this could be done by forming a town team.

At the same time A.J. Darnell travelled to Leicester with the local Rugby team and whilst there witnessed an exhibition football match between Leicester Fosse and Notts County. This gave him the desire to start his own club in Northampton.

The new away kit is on sale from the Sixfields Club Shop, retailing at GBP 39.99 for adults and GBP 29.99 for juniors.

1/5<br /><br /><br />It is :<br /><br />70 % errea<br /><br />29 % Puma for white seams on left arm and white panel on the right<br /><br />1% adidas for the collar, I\'ve got a 2004-05 Panathinaikos shirt with exactly that one<br /><br />am I wrong?

A pretty Nice kit. But I would say that it kind of clashes with the home kit. Claret and Black don\'t Mix.
