7 thoughts on “Triangles and stripes – Umbro’s goalkeeper offerings 1991-93

  1. I have a retail version of the green ‘Premier’ with number 1 pre-printed. On my shirt the middle stripe isn’t centered.

    There was also the all black jersey that Neville Southall used for Everton and Wales. I beleive that it was the same style as the ‘Premier’ and that Southall also had a version of it that was kind of a mix between green and grey.

  2. Also having done a bit more “Google-ing”, it seems as if the “Premier” jersey was actually called “GK Americana” in the 1993 UK Umbro catalogue…


    Also another recollection………. Paul Gerrard of Oldham also often favoured the purple jersey, and strangely was allowed to get away with wearing it at Aston Villa towards the end of the 92/93 season.

  3. Kevin Hitchcock and Dave Beasant wore both the turquoise and purple triangles shirts and later in the 91-92 season Beasant adopted the yellow version. The following season Hitchcock, Beasant and Dmitri Kharine all wore the yellow and purple striped shirts (although the purple triangles shirt was used at the start of the season). The green striped version was used in some reserve team games.

  4. In 1991-93 Celtic goalkeepers sported a different style Umbro shirt. The main shirt was yellow with green geometric pattern across the neck/shoulder area. The change kit was black with similar green design. I have never seen that style of shirt used by any of the other Umbro clubs at that time.

      1. That’s bizarre, I’ve never seen a GK kit design reused later as a player kit.

        I’ve often wondered why that design was only given to Celtic. I much preferred the black option but that was never released for sale.

    1. I have barely saw any pictures of the black goalkeeper top. Always kept an eye out in case one popped up for sale as there will never be demand for a retro version sadly.
