Another look at the set of Admiral adverts that appeared in Shoot! magazine in late 1976, showcasing their new range of kits…

Three more from the series adding to yesterday’s post

West Ham United: The Hammers first wore Admiral kit in the 1976 European Cup Winners Cup final against Anderlecht. It was a slightly different design to the one that was to become so familiar, with a centrally placed badge.

Manchester United: Admiral became the brand with the err.. three stripes for this hugely popular United away shirt.

Leicester City: This ad reveals that Jimmy Bloomfield personally designed this ‘epaulettes’ style for Leicester, perhaps explaining why it was never repeated for any other club.

We are now working hard on ‘Got, Not Got 2′ but you can still get last year’s model. (Cunning punk rock reference). Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
