Cambridge United unveiled an innovative new home 09/10 kit featuring a black sash on an amber background.

The sash runs from the left of the chest to the bottom right of the shirt, and the line of the sash continues down the right hand side of the predominantly amber shorts.

There are contrasting white and black flashes running from each armpit to each side of a black V-neck collar, and the back of the shirt is plain amber.

The new design is based on one sent to the club earlier this year when an opinion poll about designs was held on the club website. During discussions on the club message board, supporter Andy Stock's draft sash design proved popular and was forwarded to the club, where it also met with approval from the staff and directors.

Chairman George Rolls commented, "We are pleased with this innovative new design, which shows the club and Vandanel are in touch with the fan base, and we're sure it will be popular."

25-year-old Andy has been a supporter for ten years, helping around the ground when possible and one of the volunteers who replaces divots in the pitch at half-time. He admitted he was both surprised and delighted to learn that his design is the basis for the new kit.

"It will be an honour to see something based on my design," he said. "I think it will feel very strange; there can't be many football fans who designed something the team and fellow supporters will be wearing every week.

"It will be a very unusual shirt; I certainly can't think of a club in the league to have used something like this in recent history, although we used a sash design in the 1960-61 season."

The new shirt will cost £40 in adult sizes and £30 in junior sizes. It will be available to pre-order from Tuesday 9th June in the club shop.
