ABERDEEN 1993 AWAY SHIRT
1938/39 could have been a significant season for Aberdeen for manager Dave Halliday’s emerging side was offering the promise of an exciting new era. That promise was, of course, shelved when war broke out in Europe in September 1939.
The Dons did make one historical change that season, for gone were the traditional black and gold stripes as the club changed to red for the first time in their history.
Those stripes did not return until over 50 years later, when in 1993/1994, kit manufacturers Umbro used them for the away strip that season. It proved hugely popular with the Red Army, the majority of whom were not around to have seen an Aberdeen side wearing those colours before.
On the back of finishing runners up in all three domestic competitions the year before, Aberdeen again had a competitive side and although there were no trophies under Willie Miller, it was an attacking minded team that produced some memorable moments, including the famous battles with Torino.
