Kit Manufacturer

Oxford United began a two year period with Scoreline supplying the kits.

Sponsor

After several months without a sponsor, chairman Kevin Maxwell put his Pergamon Press company back onto the Oxford United shirts.

Home Kit

Long
sleeves

These gold shirts had a subtle ‘brush effect’ repeating pattern within the fabric.

Most long-sleeved shirts differed from the short sleeves, with the club crest detail picked out in red, whereas the short-sleeved shirt crests were picked-out in yellow.

Away Kit

Long
sleeves

A dark crimson red change strip was adopted, near-identical in style to the home kit.

OLD Away KITS

For the first outing of the new Scoreline away kit, the team wore red Umbro socks from the previous season.

For the away match at Port Vale, the 1988 ‘Wang’ Umbro shirts were worn. The reason for these shirts making an unexpected reappearance mid-season is puzzling.

Sponsored Shirts

Long
sleeves

After several months without a sponsor, chairman Kevin Maxwell put his Pergamon Press business back onto the Oxford United shirts.

The logo featured an ancient Greek coin from the city of Pergamon. This coin motif provided a number of variations to the player-issued shirts. Initially, the motif was positioned below the Pergamon name.

Around the same time, socks began to appear with the club crest and Scoreline logo embroidered on the sides.

Sponsor Variations

Long
sleeves

A few weeks later, a new variation of shirt began to appear with the coin motif positioned above the Pergamon name. These shirts were worn alongside the slightly older examples, but would gradually become the dominant shirt.

There were two different sizes of the coin motif. Some were the same size as the earlier issued shirts, and others (mainly long sleeves) had a larger and bolder coin motif.

Sponsored Away Shirts

Long
sleeves

For several matches, the team wore old Umbro navy socks.

Odd Away ShirtS

At Portsmouth, several players wore long-sleeved shirts featuring the sponsor's name printed in white. These shirts did not appear in any other first team match.

It has recently come to light that a full set of these shirts was produced. Therefore, we can only presume these were used by the reserve team and for some reason, a few shirts ended up in the first team kit bag.
