League Two side team up with Goldie Lookin’ Chain for Burberry inspired kit

League Two side Newport County have unveiled their new Burberry inspired kit.

The kit is a result of the Welsh's side collaboration with hip-hop legends and Newport natives Goldie Lookin' Chain.

Burberry have been synonymous with the hip-hop group, and the design is a tribute to the fashion brand as well as Newport's 'unique heritage and culture'.

The League Two side announced their collaboration with Goldie Lookin' Chain last Wednesday, and they claimed they were 'rolling back the years'.

This is the second time the two have collaborated after the pair joined forces in 2004 when the group were at their peak.

"Way back in the 2004/05 season, we teamed up with the legendary hometown group to produce one of the most iconic and collectable football jerseys of all time.

"The Exiles and GLC want to celebrate our city's unique heritage and culture, so we thought now would be an excellent time to celebrate the famous jersey and bring it back up to speed.

"Featuring a two-colour heritage check with entwined GLC logos, this County x GLC shirt is sure to be one for collectors.

"The design is predominantly sesame and consists of a check pattern, which is made up of red and black lines across the front of the shirt.

"The club crest has also been modified to a blacked-out special edition to blend in with the rest of the shirt."

"I love this shirt," another added.

However, others weren't too keen on the new strip: "Tragic absolutely tragic to even be associated with this lot."

A second replied: "Wtaf is that dats worse than Liverpool’s third kit!"
