That last piece of from the 1986 -1987 season while they were playing in the Henson yellow kit. Now I'm curious weather or not coastline perhaps supplied part of kit ? Maybe coastline was the training tops ? If anyone is interested then get on the case i will be divulging in my archive for evidence.

No, my brother Keith owned and operated Coastline independently.

Couldn't help but be curious why a 2nd kit manufacturer would use an identical kit design. Well indeed it's seems they were the same company in someway shape or form.
I don’t know if they were. Henson also supplied Aston Villa’s kit at the time, and I can’t imagine that a club like Villa was supplied by a Little backstreet operation in Paignton.

What sometimes used to happen, was that the new manufacturer would take over an existing kit design. Pretty sure it has happened to us a few times in the past, probably when there was the policy of not changing a Kit design for at least two years.

Excellent hector, get you. Though that advert was from the 86/87 season. I've a feeling the tracksuit tops were supplied by coastline on 86/87and indeed the following year the 1st team kit then also then become coastline. I look into it.

In all honesty this thread shouldn't have been brought across into the history section. Yes it does contain information of an historical nature but it also contains not historical stuff relating to the current management situation. It would have been better if westyorkshire had taken the time to cull the relevant information from it and present in a new more appropriately titled thread.

I would taken the time to cut the relevant information from it but I don't have the scope to do that. The admin guys moved the thread over as it became historical related. New footage this week

The thing is there is some really interesting stuff about kit manufacture in this thread but nobody will be able to find it in future because of the thread title refers to to something else.
