St Albans City have gone for a slightly more-traditional colour after releasing details of their new away kit.

Saints had a change shirt of grey last year but will now be back in blue for some of the matches away from Clarence Park.

The hummel kit will get its first airing in a competitive first-team game when City travel to Meadowbank to play Dorking Wanderers in the National League South on August 21 and will also be worn by the new reserves squad and the academy teams.

There will be new players inside it too for the senior side after unveiling two signings following the conclusion of their pre-season campaign, a 1-1 draw at Cheshunt.
