Liam Scully, the club’s chief executive, said: “We wanted to create a shirt that has both a modern and a retro feel to it. Hopefully, this will be a real hit with our fans and I’d like to thank our Supporters Board for their help during the design process.

“It’s also quite fitting that Michael Appleton wore this kit during his loan spell with us in the mid-90s.”
