One of the things with last year’s strips was the re-introduction of those great red numbers that we had in the 50s and 60s, and they looked great.
Last season the numbers were placed directly onto the backs of the shirts, but it was difficult at times to make them out.
A picture on the Newcastle website today shows Kit and Equipment assistant Neil Stoker putting the red numbers on the backs of the new strips.

And notice that where the numbers go is now a gray color – so the numbers should be clearer.

Wonder if there will be gray where the names are?
The website has an article out of behind the scenes photos of people involved in getting the club moving again for what we hope will be a very successful season.
