Lack of any red other than the badge will make the arena seats look even more silly.

I think its pretty smart though, quite like the gold trim.

It says that fans were consulted on the new kit. I don't recall any consultation. Having said that, it looks OK, but I still prefer hoops!

Yeah I like it too, looks very smart and is actually different as the past 2 or 3 have just been slight variations on the same theme.

Yeah, which fans did they consult? Because it wasn't Darlo fans.

I think it looks really smart. Hopefully with black shorts, though we've been advised that they are white. I like the fact there is very little red on it. Red is the colour of boro. Blue is the colour of Pools. Black and white are the colours of Darlo (along with some pub side further north :-D)

I don't mind having the odd season here and there with no hoops on our kit. As long as they keep reverting to our unique style afterwards.

Personally if we are going to have a plain white shirt (ie no hoops) then lets have a plain white shirt - could do without the black sleeves

Sorry just an old fogey remembering when a white shirt meant just that - a plain white shirt, maybe a club badge and nothing else - but then along came sponsorship, replica shirts and plain wasn't acceptable any more - had to have some fancy bits so you could change them every season and ask the mugs (sorry loyal fans) to buy yet another club shirt

It looks ok but it isnt hoops. I hope we get back to hoops asap. Not sure who they consulted with. Wonder what the quality is like. I know Boro fans who wwere never happy with the quality of Errea stuff.

I like it. Shame we couldn't keep the hoops but it's still a nice design. I'll look forward to picking one up in September :)

I like it too, thumbs up to the gold piping, it could be an interesting change to have white shorts with this too.

Is it a mistake that there's no red D on the sponsor?, I like the look without to be honest, but I can't see DBS liking not having their logo on there.

Liking the gold trim, moving back towards the yellow ISL days!

Have to agree with Dicky Darlo above, black shorts are a must.

Pink away shirt in the same design lads? :D

As I thought, it is the "Klimt" design from the Errea website. It's ok, just thought the Parma design would have been more striking. At least it's not stripes.
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883

As long as the away shirts don't have banana yellow stripes, I don't mind what colour they are!

An away shirt in the colour of the gold trim would be quite nice, and a nice change from straight red or yellow.

It looks very average, to be honest. Still, mustn't grumble - the fact we still have a team to support should be celebrated.

I don't dislike it, but as Steve SC says if we are to wear a white shirt, plain white would be better, although I could cope wit red / black C & C's

However I don't like the gold trim, our traditional colours are white & black with red as our change strip, so if we must have a trim it should be red.

Hope it is black shorts & socks, but again I could cope with white if they had a black stripe / black tops.

All in all we have worn a lot worse, and it compares well to last seasons shirt which I dind't like all that much.

Looks good.

Quick question, I know errea do those shirts that are pretty high in the nylon count so they are skin tight, like alot of the italian teams and more recently- Spurs. Hard to tell from the graphic but this does look a bit like one?

Anyone know if thats the case?

If my memory serves me right, when they realised we couldn't have hoops this year, the club said that fans will be consulted over a kit involving hoops next year.

That said, the fans meeting with Raj a few weeks ago involving the Trust, Supporters Club + I think Scott was there? - might have discussed kit.

If anyone on here has been involved I'm sure we'll get to hear.

I like it, although it does make us look like Derby County.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

i think it looks great, nice to have a break from the hoops, it was getting a bit monotonous as you cant really do a lot with hoops.

i also like the gold piping, makes for an interesting change, tradition is all well and good, but every teams kits change over the years.

ive been wearing a 2005 hoops kit for the past 4 seasons as i didnt see enough change in the shirt to warrant buying another, i WILL be buying this one tho.

quite similar to the xara 02/03 shirt but with gold piping instead of red, and from the pictures it looks like its a well manufactured kit, really proffesional looking, a return to the round neck too....i love it!

also very good to see DBS still backing us

and finally credit to Graham Fordy for brokering the deal with Errea - his contacts with them have obviously helped a great deal.
