Ahead of the launch of our 2018 away kit we’re looking through some memorable away kits of yesteryear and today we’re focusing on Salford in black.
Last season the Red Devils donned a predominantly black away kit and it was worn with pride in the Club’s first Challenge Cup semi-final for twenty years. Despite losing to Wigan at the Halliwell Jones Stadium Ian Watson’s men wore the black strip in victory over the Warriors in Super League; their first win at Wigan since 1997.
The 2010 away jersey was black with a hint of pink and was a big hit amongst Salford fans. Sponsored by the Trafford Centre the kit saw Salford finish 12th above both Harlequins and Catalans Dragons.
Black was also worn on Salford’s travels back in 2008 as the Club won the Championship title and their Grand Final showdown with the Celtic Crusaders. Subsequently both sides were awarded Super League status via the newly implemented licensing system.
The mid-1990’s saw Salford in black and yellow on the road. Despite winning one third of their games that season the Red Devils suffered relegation in black and yellow as six teams suffered the drop in preparation for the formation of Super League.
Black and yellow was also the theme the season prior and again the Red Devils had a very similar record in the league sealing top flight Rugby League for another season. Both black and yellow kits were sponsored by Cebora.
Could we see Salford wearing a black away kit in 2018?
