Newport County AFC are rolling back the years with the launch of a Goldie Lookin Chain-inspired third shirt.
Way back in the 2004/05 season, County teamed up with the legendary hometown group to produce one of the most iconic and collectable football jerseys of all time.
The Exiles and Goldie Lookin Chain want to celebrate Newport’s unique heritage and culture.
The club decided now would be an excellent time to celebrate the famous jersey and bring it back up to speed.
Featuring a two-colour heritage check with entwined Goldie Lookin Chain logos, this shirt is sure to be one for the collectors.
The design is predominantly sesame and consists of a check pattern, which is made up of red and black lines across the front of the shirt.
The club crest has also been modified to a blacked-out special edition to blend in with the rest of the shirt.
Fortis – a dynamic and forward-thinking estate agent – take centre stage on the front of the shirt after being confirmed as the club’s third kit partner for the 2021/22 season.
57 Tyres will feature as the back of third shirt sponsor for this season’s campaign, while Newport Distillery will be on the back of the third kit shorts.
The shirt uses Hummel’s ECO8 technology, ensuring each shirt is manufactured from high-performing polyester produced from up to eight recycled plastic bottles.
