Port Vale’s League Two rivals Plymouth Argyle have unveiled their new Puma kit.
Argyle are set to be promoted to League One, although that still has to be ratified by the EFL board and the FA.
But in the meantime, the Devon club have shown off their new strip for the 2020/21 season.
They have put their launch video on social media, with former Stoke City striker Dom Telford and ex Port Vale forward Byron Moore chosen among the players to model the strip.
The shirts go on sale today (May 28).
Plymouth were third in League Two when the campaign was suspended in mid-March because of the coronavirus crisis.
League Two clubs have agreed not to try to play the remaining games of the regular season because of costs. Instead they want to settle places on points per game average, promote the top three and allow the next four to contest the play offs behind closed doors.
That means Port Vale just miss out on the play-offs, having been eighth when the campaign was put on hold.
Vale revealed last week that they are also pressing ahead with their own plans for a new kit.
Understandably, that hadn’t been the top priority over the last couple of months as the club had to deal with the end of the season and a financial crisis throughout the lower divisions. Players and staff have been furloughed to protect the future of a club which is now relying on the financial support of owners Carol and Kevin Shanahan.
Vale chief executive Colin Garlick commented on the new kit last week, saying: “It is important to us and the normal business of designing the shirts etcetera has been taking place…..although it has been slightly different.
“I won’t say any more than that, but it has been slightly different.
“We are looking to release a shirt and we will get to a launch date with that hopefully very soon.”
