Third kits seem to be coming back into fashion.

How often do they actually get worn (specifically the ones that have no charity connection)?

We last had one around 2016 and it was a big seller in the club shop too, but this only made it more controversial when we went the entire season without wearing it once and we stopped having them after that.
We are playing in ours against Rochdale this weekend and I’ve got no idea why as there isn’t a kit clash between both sides home kits

We wore our yellow third kit last weekend against Pools, home kit is blue, away kit is white, they play in blue and white. Although I didn’t actually know we had a third kit until then.

Possibly to justify having one since fans will have bought it.

Since we have blue home and red away, we have no need for one.

Last time we did need one was when we had a black away kit in 2015/16 and were told we couldn't wear it (or our home kit, obviously) at Wycombe, and so we had to quickly print sponsors and numbers onto a red training kit. It's not been an issue since, even though the following season we did have a 3rd kit which ended up never being worn.

We normally have a third kit but it’s a charity kit, which I’m ok with but this isn’t it so I’m wondering if we are going to get a 4th?

Think it's hideous. The typography is absolutely amateur.

Was going to post it in the tinpot thread, I always expected such a rebrand to look s**t but never could have imagined it would be so bad. It’s rightly been slated online but it would take a Kwasi Kwarteng level of U turn for them to admit how badly wrong they’ve got this.

If I saw that badge on the side of a building, I'd be expecting people to come out with a fillet burger and chips.

Club have put out a fan survey looking for feedback, only 140 characters per answer so difficult to give detailed answers other than it looks like a year 7 did it on clip art.

I honestly don't think it's that bad. However I've seen several mockups today on twitter that are much better and they haven't been paid to make it.
