Latics unveil new tangerine away shirt

Date published: 02 August 2021


A striking tangerine shirt is Latics' new away strip for the upcoming 2021/22 Sky Bet League Two campaign.

The shirt is based on the classic fan favourite colour with black accents.

The front sublimation is a unique owl feathered repeat design broken down by layered hexagons - the patterned shape being chosen by supporters with 53% of a recent vote.

Fashioned from performance enhancing fabrics, the hummel authentic poly jersey feels as light as a feather and provides maximum ventilation.

Fans can get their hands on the new shirts at the club shop, which is situated in the corner of the Joe Royle Stand at Boundary Park, off Hilbre Avenue (OL2 5BL).

Meanwhile, Latics brought the curtain down on their pre-season schedule with a 5-1 behind-closed-doors defeat at neighbours Rochdale at the weekend.

A trialist scored Latics' consolation goal.

Boss Keith Curle said: "The friendly against Rochdale served a purpose and that was to get minutes into the legs of the lads who haven’t played as much this month.

"Naturally the scoreline isn’t great and we’ll address that over the next couple of days with our post-match work.

"Now we have to remain focused and make sure we’re all fighting fit and ready for the first league game of the season next weekend."

Latics host Newport County in their new campaign opener on Saturday.
