STOP PRESS! Boro colours... 6 years 7 months ago #80213

... after my last posting to George, I finally solved this puzzle once and for all. I told Ron Hunt on Saturday that I was convinced Boro played in green.

I was correct.

I have just checked a photocopy of a column from the Wigan Examiner dated 8th July 1926. (A portion of that season's AGM).

The pertinent sentence contained within it is ...

"He noticed that the colour of the team's jerseys had been changed FROM green TO black and gold - he was against the last change - and hoped that the gold would monopolise the black." :)

There you go George, Get that 1925/26 photo colourised!

Bert/George/Ron, e-mail me for a copy of the said article if you require it. The person who uttered this sentence by the way was a person later heavily involved with Latics.

Don't forget though, that the article only confirms it was green for the previous (1925/26) season and not the one prior to that (1924/25), although it may also have been green than.

e-mail me the address you wish me to send the scan to....

I'd like to say 'no trouble', but I can't. It took me two hours to trawl through the info I have on the two seasons in question! After my last negative message I gave it just one more go and 'bingo'!!

Poor scan from the book, but you get the idea.
