Crystal Palace are to do away with their traditional red and blue striped shirts for next season.

Instead they are going back to the sash design with one red and one blue stripe next to each other going from the left shoulder to the right hip on a white shirt.

It will be the first time the club have worn the sash since the 1986 -1987 season having worn it for all but one season in the decade before that. During that time they achieved promotion to the old Division Two and Division One leagues, but also suffered relegation from the then top flight in 1981.

The club's away kit will be a yellow shirt with blue shorts.
