An image doing the rounds on social media, shared by dozens of supporters, shows the apparent home shirt to have thicker black and white stripes with a grandad neck collar.

The design seemingly pays tribute to the Kevin Keegan Entertainers era with the collar displaying two buttons.

A purple shirt is also pictured. It is not known whether it could be the away or the third shirt.
