Cambridge have gone back to stripes which is fine, but those down the side feature Puma's latest gimmick, graded spots. No.

The early release of Chesterfield's new strips gave us the first glimpse of Puma's latest Striker template. The usual broad tapes down the shoulders, sleeves and shorts now have a fade effect which on closer examination turns out to be made up of small dots. Not among my favourites.

Designer: FBT

Sponsor: Mornflake Oats

It's time for a change and Thai sportswear company FBT have replaced Carbrini as Crewe's technical sponsor. The brief is pretty straightforward - Crewe shouldn't depart too far from their traditional red/white/red outfit (last season was the exception that proves the rule) but there should be enough detailing to make their first strip stand out. Graded irregular bands and a smart contrasting tape on the red shirt meet these requirements. The blue alternative lacks the additional detailing but is nevertheless perfectly servicable.

History has not been kind to clubs from small communities: think of Gretna and Rushden & Diamonds, clubs that went to the wall when their wealthy owners stopped backing them. FGR's owner, Dale Vince, took over in 2010 with the intention of making the club the most ecologically sustainable in the UK so perhaps the outcome will be more positive. Visiting supporters can look forward to Vegan catering and, if plans come to fruition, a beautiful all-wood stadium in the future.

Their strips are unchanged. But really, lime green?

Third

Designer: Puma

Sponsor: Ssangyong

Purple is now the alternative colour of choice for the Hatters, matched with "intimidating" dark blue on the change kit (a shade more frightening than standard navy I suppose) and white/silver on the third. What I don't like is Puma's increasingly fussy detailing. The bands on the third shirt, for example, not only fade but also are printed with a cross-hatch pattern.

One day Swindon will shock us all by adopting a strip that is not straight out of the catalogue. Not this season though.

Second

Designer: Sondico

Sponsor: Jones Building Group

Yeovil have worn hooped shirts since they were promoted to the Football League fifteen years ago and each season they come up with a fresh interpretation: this one is perhaps the most original to date. The three stars above the crest have provoked much comment in the West Country. Each one represents five years spent in the Football League. Reminds me of primary school.
