Huddersfield Town have gone back to the future with their new change kit.

The red and black Puma shirt echoes the ‘electric hoops’ of the nineties.

Worn between 1991-93, that popular strip was made by Gola, who were also shirt sponsors.

The new version will carry the Radian B brand logo of long-time backers Thornton & Ross.

The Huddersfield-based pharmaceuticals manufacturer are going into their sixth season of sponsorship.

The Colne Valley firm was founded in 1922 – the same year Town won the FA Cup.

Town first wore red and black as a change kit in 1969-70, the last time they won promotion to the top flight.

The shirts were striped rather than hooped, and the vertical design has been repeated several times since.

Red and black hoops are fairly rare when it comes to sports kits.

Germany wore a similar design when they thrashed Brazil 7-1 in the World Cup semi-finals.

Brazil’s best-supported team Flamengo also wear red and black hoops.

Conference side Wrexham will adopt the design (it was their original strip) as they celebrate their 150th anniversary this season.

It’s been used as a change kit by QPR, whose home colours are blue and white hoops.

Huddersfield YMCA Rugby Union Club wear the colours, as do Welsh side Aberavon.

Replica Town away shirts are now available from the stadium store.
