In days of old, Knights had Coats of Arms on their shields and cloaks - something to identify them by in the heat of battle. These crests have lasted for centuries, some becoming crests for villages, towns or even cities.
Why, then, do football clubs have a problem with their identities, none more so than Luton Town?
We have had some fantastic kits over the years, probably most famous being Eric Morecambe`s own 'liquorice allsorts' kit design; for yes, it was he who came up with Luton`s now retro orange, black and white striped jersey design.
I have been supporting Luton for 30 odd years, and the one kit I seem to remember the most, and the one which other fans seem immediately to think of when Luton are mentioned, and which Luton fans want and long for the most, is finally back, in modernised form.
Ok - it`s our reserve kit at the moment, but it`s a start. It may not have been worn during the 1959 F.A. cup final against Forest, or the 1988 slaughter of Arsenal in the Littlewoods cup final, but I reckon more Luton faithful had worn this design than any other.
'Orange, Orange, Black and White - Orange, Black and White!' Was probably the first chant I can remember at Luton, and let`s make it so again.
I wager that more of us will be wearing the orange 'allsorts' kit this season than any other.
Let the Kenny be a splash of orange, and let us keep some form of identity in what is going to be a very exciting few years for us; a change of ground, maybe, but always the same shield and cloak!
