Before we were Cherry & White.

To kill some time during lockdown, we've colourised some old Black & White photos to show the early Club colours. See https://www.gloucesterrugbyheritage.org ... t-80-years.

I assume in 1888 we considered ourselves to be I Zingari ?

Wouldn't it be a great idea if the powers that be looked back at the early shirts when looking for alternatives for our current team?

Far too good an idea for Glos to adopt!! Much better to have the dreadfull garb we have year on year.

You mean like the 1888 strip in yellow, red and black?

The problem is that they haven't copied it but just used the same colours. Using an old strip as it is has heritage . What we used a few weeks back was a failed hommage.

Brilliant! Very interesting. Is the first ‘Cherry and White’ shirt the one ‘borrowed’ from Painswick and never returned?
