Independiente Rivadavia unveiled the new 08/09 home and away kits made by Puma.

Linfield and Lucy Evangilista launched the new home kit for the 08/09 season made by Umbro.

On closer inspection of the picture you will see that actually the shirt has been ripped to allow for a more ‘sultry’ shot of Miss Evangelista.

And it seems that once the Linfield bosses saw this and a few other artfully ripped-shirt shots they had them withdrawn from public perusal. In reports the photographs are described as ‘provocative’.

One of the pictures shows former Miss Northern Ireland Lucy Evangelista lying on her back with the club colours covering only her cleavage as her midrift is fully exposed. The sultry shot is believed to be one of six removed by the club from the website following complaints.

Linfield Football Club was remaining tight-lipped over claims 'sexually provocative' pictures had been placed on their official website.

To commemorate this and in line with two of its greatest achievements, the new 2008/09 official home shirt will be a mixture of old and new with the influence of the 1970's colours.

Hereford United unveiled the new 08/09 replica home kit made by Nike. Hereford originally played in an all-white strip, but their traditional colours are white shirts and black shorts.

This dates back to the end of the Second World War when they used material from blackout curtains to make shorts when they ran out of white material. However they have occasionally reverted to an all-white strip, most recently in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons.

Hereford's shirt sponsors have been Sun Valley Poultry (now Cargill) since 1991, the biggest employer in Hereford. The Sun Valley logo remains on the shirt presently despite the change of company name. A new three year sponsorship deal was agreed in May 2007 which will extend the sponsorship to 19 years, one of the longest in British football history.

Hereford's shirt & kit wear suppliers are M and M Direct, another large employer in Herefordshire who have supported the club for many years.
