Argyle Women Switch to Black Shorts
Argyle Women will make the switch from white to black shorts on their playing kit for the remainder of the 22/23 FA Women’s National League season to reduce our players’ concerns over playing football while on their periods.
The club took the decision swiftly following a short consultation with members of the Argyle Women set-up, following the lead of other clubs, like West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Manchester City in the past few days.
The issue was brought further into the public consciousness following the Lionesses’ inspirational Euro 22 success earlier this summer, in which a number of the England Women players highlighted the difficulty of playing in white.
It is a simple, but effective, measure to ensure that our players can feel supported in concentrating fully on the 90 minutes on the pitch.
Argyle Women’s General Manager, Elaine Dalton-Fyfe, said: “It’s great that the club are supporting our change to black shorts for our home matches.
“The team will now be able to focus on the performance without the distraction of wearing white shorts.
“It is important to us that we look smart and professional when representing the club and this means a lot to the girls.”
Next up for Argyle Women is a fixture against Portsmouth at Manadon Sports Hub on Sunday, 30 October, 2.30pm kick off. On Sunday, 20 November, Ryan Perks' side will host Ipswich Town at Home Park, and we'd love to see as many Argyle supporters there as possible as we look to grow the women's game in the region.
