Shels release cracking home jersey for their return to the top flight

The Dublin club celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2020.

2020 SEES SHELBOURNE back in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division for the first time in seven years. 

And the Drumcondra outfit will be returning in style after this morning’s release of their new home jersey for next season. 

To mark the club’s 125th anniversary, Shels will wear a retro Umbro shirt in their traditional red and white.

It takes inspiration from their successful period in the early 1960s when they faced some of Europe’s top sides, including Barcelona in the 1963 European Cup Winners’ Cup.  

The jerseys worn by Shels at the Nou Camp featured a blue crest with gold castles similar to the one on their latest kit. 

You’ll be doing well to find a nicer jersey in the League of Ireland next season.
