I had no idea such a thing even existed until this thread. I still find myself being sceptical about it, despite that photo of Gerry Young.

 

Anyone else have anything more on this mysterious thing?

 

 

In the magazine there is also a picture of Fantham in it but they are only top half pics cant see the shorts. Spoke with Richard who ones the programme shop on leppings lane. He has actually seen one & had one in the shop for sale in the past. Apparently it was made by umbro. No badge on it ofcause.

I believe the picture above of Gerry young was taken in 1970 ish im not sure . The 'Backpass' magazine i mentioned above says 68-74. Ive read somewhere else (cant remember where) that we wore it around 4 times?

Don't think it's the best but it's got to be the coolest !!

  

Can anybody name these left to right. The guys in the front with caps on looks like they belong in Starsky & hutch or some other US cop show of the time.

No, no. I was being a bit silly about the group. I've haven't got the foggiest who they are and I thought of Chigaco because they were a cische  70s group.
