Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman

Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman. The kit, which sees the Cobblers revert back to black for a change kit after the popularity of the 2005/2006 away strip, is once again manufactured by Vandanel.

Northampton Town was founded in 1897 after meetings between the town’s schoolteachers and local solicitor A.J. Darnell. At the time schoolboy football was strong in the county due in part to the enthusiasm of the local teachers. They were however dissatisfied with the current arrangement of arranged friendlies between schools preferring to teach the boys through practical examples and they felt this could be done by forming a town team.

At the same time A.J. Darnell travelled to Leicester with the local Rugby team and whilst there witnessed an exhibition football match between Leicester Fosse and Notts County. This gave him the desire to start his own club in Northampton.

 QPR new Crest

After Portsmouth's new crest, QPR FC also unveiled a new Club crest, marking the start of a new era. Officially launched Sunday 4th May 2008, the new logo signifies the Club's determination to embrace a new chapter and identity at Loftus Road.

The new Crest combines elements of the Club's heritage and was designed to encapsulate the past, present and future, with the famous Hoops being re-integrated into the official identity. R's legends from yesteryear joined QPR's current squad and children from the Club's Centre of Excellence on the pitch ahead of kick-off against West Bromwich Albion to unveil the new crest.

Flavio Briatore, Chairman of QPR Holdings Ltd, said: "This is a significant day for Queens Park Rangers Football Club and it was important for the fans to see the new crest first.

"It represents another huge forward step in our aim to re-launch the Club into a global brand - anchored in W12, but giving it a vision for the future.

"I am delighted with the design of the new crest, which maintains the Queens Park Rangers tradition of blue and white hoops. I know how important it is to the fans that the hoops remain, and that was always going to be the case."

Briatore explained the rationale behind the new crest, adding: "This is a period of huge transformation at QPR.

"This new crest is stylish, thrilling and authentic and signifies the start of what we hope will become the most successful period in the Club's history."

Schalke 04 unveiled their new 08/10 home shirt made by adidas The new home kit will be used for the next two seasons. The club was founded on May 4, 1904 as Westfalia Schalke by a group of high school students and first wore the colors red and yellow. In 1924, the football team parted ways with the gymnasts once again – this time taking the club chairman along with them. They took the name FC Schalke 04 and adopted the now familiar blue and white uniforms from which their second nickname would derive – "Die Königsblauen" (The Royal Blues).

The new home shirt will be first worn at the home match against Eintracht Frankfurt. The fans can enjoy this kit the day before. On Friday (9.5.) Launched at the S04 shop on the club grounds and available at the online store. For supporters of the royal blue adidas has done something very special. This is the first time the words "Schalke 04" appear at the front of the collar. And in the neck band, anyone can read about what the institution motto is :"EIN LEBEN LANG, BLAU UND WEISS EIN LEBEN LANG" which means something like : "A MY LIFE, BLUE AND WHITE ALL MY LIFE." And the counterfeiting increased security, the security hologram. And finally, of course, the embroidered logos of FC Schalke 04 and adidas.

 portsmouth new crest

Portsmouth FC unveiled a new crest which differs significantly from the old crest.

It removes the 'three points' and the 'star and moon' now have a three dimentional look. The 'moon' also has more diameter and looks quite like the citys Coat of Arms.

Its the first significant change of the emblem for 15 years. The new-look design is an update of the traditional star and crescent and will be used for the first time in the programme for the club's clash with Fulham on Sunday.

Gone is the Old English- style typeface upon a golden scroll and in comes a bold Portsmouth FC banner across the centre of the shield.

The new design also boasts a three-dimensional effect. Lines have been scored within the crescent moon and striking star.

Slight changes in the shades of the historical symbols ensure the overall effect is that of an emblem reflecting a strong light.
