Band of Joy

ARGYLE are going back to the future on their travels next season.

The PUMA kit that we will be wearing for our away games in 2016-17 pays homage to one of the all-time iconic Argyle strips - green and black bands across the chest of a white shirt.

It harks back to the 1964-65 Second Division campaign, when Malcolm Allison was manager; Frank Lord and Mike Trebilcock were joint leading scorers; and Tony Book, John Hore, Barrie Jones, Norman Piper and Richard Reynolds made their debut.

Like the choice of next season's green-with-white-pinstripes home shirt, the away strip was selected after consultation with supporters representing a wide spectrum of the Argyle family.

As with the 1964-65 strip, the away shorts will also be white, with a green trim; likewise the socks.
