Saints fans split with reactions to new away kit

SAINTS predicted their new away kit could divide opinion - and it certainly appears that is the case, judging by reaction on social media.

Living up to the marketing mantra of Bold is Brave, the teal, aqua, and gold adorned shirt has arguably split the fanbase, with some Saints supporters still yet to decide where their loyalties lie.

Some are undecided on the colours, whilst others are not sure about the waves designed to represent the Solent.


In the announcement of the kit this morning, Saints' Sarah Batters, director of marketing of partnerships, predicted: “We know our fans may be divided on their opinions of the shirt, given the colour choice and the standout pattern, but we look forward to seeing it worn by our fans.”

With two kits now revealed, some fans pitted the away kit against the home kit, which also caused a stir thanks to the fact it deviates from the red and white stripes Saints are famed for.

Here are just a few of the reactions shared by Saints fans on Twitter.
