Inverness Caledonian Thistle will be 'all white on the night' this season with a new white away strip for their SFL title bid -- a complete change from last season's black strip.

New signing from Leicester City, midfielder Lee Cox, and former Motherwell and Southend striker Richie Foran, who has penned a new deal despite SPL clubs' interest, paraded the new kit, meeting Flybe cabin crew in front of a Flybe jet today.

Manager Terry Butcher said: "The new strips have arrived from manufacturers Errea and they look very smart indeed -- white for a new start in a new division. I'm sure the fans will like it, though, of course, their priority is for us to score goals and win games in the strip.

"The players are all delighted that Flybe have extended their main sponsorship of the club for a 3rd year, so it's appropriate we do the kit launch beside one of their jets.

We're looking to give them payback by mounting a really strong campaign to return to the SPL at the first attempt -- with plenty of fans wearing the new strip to encourage us."

Supporters will have their first chance to see -- and to buy -- the new away strip at Friday's free 'Open Training Night' at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium when fans can watch a training session and take stadium tours. The players will wear the new away kit for their training stint under Butcher and assistant Maurice Malpas.

Commercial manager Darren Mackintosh said: "We anticipate the new away white strip will sell extremely well. The club shop will be open on the night for people interested in becoming a season ticket holder as well as giving fans the opportunity to be first to snap up the new kit."

Flybe General Manager of Market Development Ian Taylor "Flybe is again very proud to continue as being the main Club sponsor of Inverness Caledonian Thistle ,as we enter the third year of our relationship with the Club.

We recognise the importance that the Football club has in the local community and as Flybe continues our commitment to Inverness and its air services the relationship of two community assets seems a great fit.

To mark the event at the stadium on Friday night, any fan that purchases a new away shirt will be entered into a draw for two Flybe tickets on its services from Inverness-so a lucky fan will really have the opportunity of an away fixture!!"

Thanks to Ian

White with red shorts never a good idea. Like Blackburn away - horrendous

It looks like the result of crystal palace and fulham\'s kits having unprotected ***

not a prob for the heads up i\'m a caley thistle fan through and through<br /><br />lonewolf AKA Ian <br /><br />and ontopic i prefer last seasons black and red kit

  1. fsc

i think it looks quite nice except for the collar, why is it black?? it should be blue or white

  1. fsc

completely agree. the splashes of red and blue are unique but not overdone. its just that bloody black collar.

  1. fsc

That stupid black colar ruins the whole strip

It can never be the worst away kit in scotland this season with celtic bringing back the bumble bee kit :whistle:

9/10.<br />original.<br />looks a quality kit.<br />great colours.<br /><br />end.

  1. James

I wouldn\'t call it original... Its exactly the same template being used for next seasons Cobblers shirt :shock: <br /><br />I wouldn\'t call this kit bad though

  1. lee smith

looks good apart from the collar, might think about buying it

As a Ross County fan I should\'t be defending C*ley! but for those of you not in the know, the black on their kit represents the colours of the former Inverness Thistle FC who wore red and black striped shirts. The colours of Caledonian FC were blue and white.<br /><br />Just to add - crap kit for a crap team!

  1. fsc

i like the top..<br />it would be better if all white.. right now though :dry:

  1. Ian MIlls

just you wait till we walk it this season and you lot go back down where you belong

Just as well ICT did get relegated, that kit could have knocked another few million off the value of the TV deal! :whistle:
