Home colours
A new set of Adidas shirts came into use that re-introduced the collar flaps. The only difference between this shirt and that
of two years previous was the manufacturers logo which was now placed on a white stripe (so the logo was now black) and
the Adidas lettering was now added below it.
Change colours
Notts retained the same yellow away shirts as the previous year but the shorts were now yellow instead of blue (so it was an
all yellow kit with blue trimmings). This may also have been the season in which Notts introduced a 3rd choice all blue strip
with white trim. The original set of blue shirts had collar flaps.
