Wycombe Wanderers get shirty with opposing strikers
League Two side Wycombe Wanderers have come up with a novel way of trying to stop rivals scoring next season - a goalkeeper's shirt that is designed to confuse opponents.
The first strip is yellow and has a multi-coloured kaleidoscope pattern on the front, which resembles a target to aim for -- rather than the goal.
The sky blue and baby pink colour of the second strip is also designed to stand out from the crowd and disrupt the opposition's attacks.
Keeper kit science !
"There has been a lot of research into the science behind goalkeeper kits, which is why you see a lot of luminous colours and chevron patterns which enlarge the presence of the keeper in the goal," said Wanderers coach Barry Richardson, who is the club's second-choice goalkeeper.
"We've developed that idea over the past couple of years, with a bright lime and green design last year, and have enjoyed working with O'Neills to come up with these designs which we hope will be effective on the pitch and also be popular for fans who'd like to buy the replica versions."
