Welcome to Steveeyre's unofficial Derby County Kit history
The Kit History is now in its 11th year and has just had a makeover
The site will now be easier to navigate but retains all your favourites
The history covers the earliest shirts known
Also there is a graphic history which provides a graphic guide to the shirt history of the Rams
New to the history is a quick guide to sponsors and kit manufacturers
Which provides quick guide to the position and facing direction of the Ram on the shirt and does it have any bearing on the Rams fortunes ~ this is our new 'KIT STATISTICS GUIDE'
There is also the Rams Badge History a comprehensive guide to Rams Official Badges/Logo's as worn on the shirts
Don't forget the 'ODD KITS' section which shows some truly awful kits from
If you have any kits to add or any information it is always gratefully received
please contact me
The kit history does NOT support advertising and is maintained purely by me in my spare time.
To help with running costs I am preparing a cd rom of all the kit details here on the site
Plus some other goodies like copies of kit contracts and even a document listing the pre match meal requirements of a team from the nineties.
If you have enjoyed the kit history and would like a cd
at a cost of £5 (uk postage free- other areas a quote will be obtained)
please contact me
I have had lots of queries regarding the fact that SAAB were the first shirt sponsor of The Rams and not BMA
I can assure fans that this is not the case - the SAAB shirts were only used in a promotional capacity and never actual shirts as shirt sponsors were not allowed.
Around 1976/77 DCFC struck a deal with a local SAAB dealer (Believed to be Woodford at Mickeover) who via SAAB sponsored the Rams 1st team players giving them the use of a SAAB car each . The deal included various advertising around the ground and on tickets etc.
The players were seen in various photos wearing a SAAB shirt as an indication of how shirt sponsorship would look if allowed . These shirts were also worn by the Golden Goal Girl ticket sellers around the ground.
A picture of the shirt now appears in the history
