An eagle-eyed Port Vale fan has noticed the following images on the official Football League website and speculation is rife that the designs could be those of Vale’s new first-team kit.
With the delays to Keith Ryder’s takeover, a new kit deal was delayed and Vale have been forced to take to the field with a temporary kit – home colours of black and white and away colours of pink and black.
But the club’s administrators have made it clear that the current home design is a temporary “limited” edition while the pink kit will effectively become the team’s third kit.
A recent news article on the official Port Vale website stated: “A new bespoke home kit will be available mid-October. This will replace the emergency home kit and will be on sale mid-October.
“A Gold/Black away strip will be used by the team in early September along with the Pink kit. These will also be on sale early September.”
With the colours on these designs from the Football League website apparently matching those described below, speculation has increased that these are in fact, Vale’s future first-team colours.
