Following a successful home kit launch, that we reported here, West Ham’s new kit supplier, Adidas, have designed an away kit with echoes of the change kits worn in the 1980’s, which marked a successful period in the club’s proud history.
One of the Hammers players from the ’80’s, George Parris, said, “It was quite a time to be a West Ham player. ’86 was a great year for the Club and coming third was a great achievement. “The new kit is very smart. It’s a lovely kit, it fits well and I’m sure the first team will appreciate it.”
Kevin Nolan, today’s club captain, added, “I’m delighted with it, it’s really nice. The gear is top notch, they’ve done a good job and both the home and away kits look superb. “The kit has gone on to a new level, the colours and everything. It looks quality and I’m sure the fans will be delighted.”
