LATICS have revealed their new kits for the 2015-16 season.

The strips - manufactured by Kappa - were shown off to fans at the DW Stadium.

Firstly, Richard O Donnell, Martyn Waghorn and Tim Chow took to the stage in a classic blue and white striped home shirt, this year featuring a plain reverse, with blue shorts and plain white socks.

Lee Nicholls, Craig Morgan and Jason Pearce were next out to reveal a kit which will give Latics fans memories of their famous FA Cup final - an all-black affair with a white trim including a stripe down the centre of the back.

Finally, Emyr Huws was presented to the crowd in the third kit, which for this season will be all red with white and blue trim, and Grant Holt showcased the new training kit which is a deep shade of blue.

Latics head of commercial Ian Laithwaite said: “The kit launch was a really successful event and we’re delighted with the early feedback we’ve received from fans about the new kit.

“Kappa provide us with a good look but also a top quality product and we hope this can be the start of a long and successful partnership.”

The kits will be available to buy from DW Sports in the Grand Arcade toward the end of July, although pre-orders will be taken online, following the launch of laticsstore.com next week. Season Card holders also receive 10% discount when placing an order online. Adult shirts are priced at £39.99 for the standard version, or £49.99 for the home player issue shirt.
