INSANE Wycombe Wanderers 18-19 Goalkeeper Kits Launched

Wycombe Wanderers have done it again. Having already released garish, extremely odd goalkeeper uniforms the past few seasons, today marked the launch of the new Wycombe 18-19 goalkeeper jerseys.

As last year, the Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper unis were designed to make the shot stopper appear larger and distract the opposition. The vortex design on the front of the shirts is meant to create a target for the opponent strikers rather than the goal itself.

Wanderers’ chairman Trevor Stroud explained: “Our previous goalkeeping coach Barry Richardson was a fantastic character who believed there was a marginal gain to be had by making the goalkeeper appear bigger and distracting to the opposition. There has been some research in that area which led to last year’s designs, and they went viral across the globe from the moment we launched them, resulting in a huge number of sales compared to previous years.

“Although Barry left us at Christmas, plans for the new kits were already in place and we’re thrilled to see them come together to create these two designs which we hope will be just as popular with fans.”

Susie Robertson, O’Neills’ UK Sales Manager, said: “Wycombe enjoyed great success with last year’s goalkeeper kit launch and we were intrigued to hear their plans for the new strip, which has been another great project for us to work on."
