ANDY RITCHIE's Town will have a smart new-look Mitre kit for next season.
And the traditional blue and white striped shirt will have a plain back in 2007-08, so that fans can more easily see the players' names and numbers.
In addition, the badge on the front is set on a white crest - in common with Manchester United and a host of top European clubs - and the three stars representing the hat trick of Championship wins in the 1920s are still proudly retained.
The banner of new club sponsors CasinoRed.com is prominently across the front of the shirt, replacing that of Yorkshire Building Society.
The stripes themselves are darker and wider than last season, with a white stripe down the centre of the shirt (rather than the usual blue).
The shirts feature Mitre's 'Cool Fit' system of mesh panels down the sides to help keep players cool during games.
The shirt has a white rounded collar.
Town's shorts next season are again white, with a blue stripe down the sides, but the socks are of a striking hooped design, to echo those worn popularly by the club in the 1930s and 1950s.
The kit is expected on sale to supporters on Saturday, June 30, and Town's retail manager Michele Adamson said: "We have kept the traditional blue and white stripes on the front and incorporated a plain white back - something which features heavily in the Premiership and Championship.
"It's an attractive new design which we believe will appeal to Town supporters of all ages - combining the best of a retro look with a more modern feel to that of any previous Town kit."
Pre-orders, for which season-ticket holders will have priority, are on 01484 484144. Fans can also call in at a club store or order on line.
The club have yet to unveil plans for their change strip, which will also feature the CasinoRed.com logo across the front and be designed by new suppliers Mitre.
While Gary Taylor-Fletcher is back in training, three players - Andy Booth, Andy Holdsworth and Danny Schofield - are still receiving treatment from physio Lee Martin ahead of Saturday's visit of Millwall.
Booth (groin) is the biggest doubt.
