Shit Football Kits: Bury’s Away Kits, 1993-98

By Chris Wright

You’ll probably feel the need to bury something when you clamp your peepers around this week’s Shit Kits offering.

Presenting: Bury’s godawful away strip from 1993/94…

Though, in fairness, the harsh lighting in the first photo doesn’t exactly do Matchwinner’s heroically cavalier design justice – as a quick glimpse at this second, naturally lit snap will duly attest to…

Yep, it’s less blue – more washed-out mint green and lavender – but that’s not the end of the matter, oh no, far from it.

Bury played in this hideous purple and green monstrosity whilst on their travels the season prior (1992/93), which was almost enough to make the subsequent mint-green abhoration seem like a masterpiece of subtlety upon it’s release…

…and their away kit for the season after (1994/95) was barely an improvement either…

…then came the checkerboard/chef’s trousers away kit (1995/96)…

…all the while being made to don this abhoration when they ran out at Gigg Lane…

The Shakers were then granted a brief repreive in 1996/97 with a toned-down blue-and-red striped affair courtesy of Le Coq Sportif, before duly having their retinas set upon again in 1997/98 – when the club ‘okayed’ a change strip that seemed to be made from Peter Stringfellow’s old bed sheets…

The poor, poor buggers.

    I actually own that home strip, a fantastic buy. Although I must say they have improved dramatically. This season home kit is pure class.

  2. Toji says:

    Looks like they went with their sponsor’s theme…and based their kit on wrapping paper :S

  3. Tom Jones says:

    The white and blue one is class. It is really only the top two that are any poor.

  4. 'Sota Dan says:

    Is that a heart over the “i”? Awesome.

  5. Montesquieu says:

    I would have thought that the checkerboard kit was made after 1998 and Croatia’s run in the World Cup, but I guess it can be said that Bury did it first.

  6. Unitedtillidie says:

    Sultan, what’s your point? Yes that is one of the worst United kits ive seen, but I think I speak for everyone when I say these Bury ones are worse

  7. Almost as bad as Arsenals old football shirt that looks like worms.
