Southend United’s new 2022/23 home kit produces very mixed reaction from fans

Southend United’s new 2022/23 home kit produces very mixed reaction from fans after it was revealed on Friday afternoon.

The Shrimpers will wear it for the first time this weekend in their pre-season friendly against newly relegated Gillingham.

Some fans thought it looked the best in years, others really weren’t keen with the price of it.


We are proud to present our new Macron home kit for the 2022/23 season.

Taking inspiration from the 1988-90 Firholm home shirt and applying a modern twist, the new navy blue shirt and shorts features a lighter blue diagonal pattern which combines with a white panel on the shoulder and down both sides.

Macron’s hero logo features on the shoulders, and a stylish white piping around the V-neck collar completes the look.

The bespoke kit is sponsored by our new principal partner PG Site Services, who have their logo sublimated into the material, who were announced on a three-year deal earlier this morning.

Following the additional commercial announcements made, Acoustics Agency adorn the back of shirt, Swapsicle the sleeve and Workplace Safety Solutions are emblazond on the Back of Shorts.

Available from 3pm online today and then from 10am on Saturday from the Roots Hall Club Shop, the kit is priced at £45 for adults (M-5XL) and £40 for juniors (5XS-S).

The home kit was modelled by summer signing Dan Mooney, defender Nathan Ralph and striker Harry Cardwell, while last year’s Player of the Year Steve Arnold donned his new goalkeeper jersey for the photoshoot.

Fans can get their hands on the 22/23 home kit by purchasing from Macron’s online store from here at 3pm.

As mentioned, Southend United’s new 2022/23 home kit produces a very mixed reaction from fans…

@KimFore93: Liking the keeper kit 👌

@Martbess81: It was supposed to be royal blue but Ron said no!! I think it looks good enough very similar to the 88 shirt👍🏻

@Dylan42678410: I mean it’s ok don’t like the neck

@OfficialReeceJS: That looks well nice

@tomfoolery95: Fucking hell this is hideous 😂. Bring back the Nike templates.

@lew32323: That’s grim

@mrphillippeflop: That is awful, someone needs to get the sack over this

@Jokerclub: Ffs do you guys Ever stop moaning ?

@mpstiling: Take my money

@SUFCcode: I’m the only one that likes this it seems

@LeeJordo1: Not sure on that to be honest 😒

@Andrew_Shrimper: It’s different, which is good in my opinion! Shame Ron vetoed the yellow and that sponsor looks absolutely awful, but I like that we’ve gone away from plain.

@LazyJam: It’s nice

@MitchJesse: Fuck me it looks like Pjs

@sjapresley: Initial view looks horrendous but I think that is the quality of photo on the post. The photo gallery in the link it looks better. Could be a grower…

@STBlues_: Absolutely this. The photos on the website make it look a lot nicer and less, vibrant I guess?

@nick_cooper94: Love it 🤩

@stevedeltasix: Not a patch on last season, no thanks 😎

@stanly_sims: Everything crossed for a decent away shirt then

@hwager0: looks decent right now but will defo grow on me

@SearchTerry: I personally like it, completely different to what I was expecting, think it looks decent but hey I must be in the minority reading some of the comments 😅 or should I just moan about it like seems to be the norm..

@JuKeBoX2001: Tf is this 😭

@phillsilver9: More positive news a nice kit shades of the late 80’s and early 90’s in the design it gets my vote.

@Astonvillaandy: Take my money, imo a vast improvement on previous years, well done @SUFCRootsHall

@groningooner: Southend might have gone to shit in recent years but we’ve looked good doing it 😅 Another brilliant kit ngl

@RobbGray: Southend. Sponsor is a joke. Shorts shouldn’t have pattern, should be solid colour. Socks are class. Like the shoulder logos. It’s not a template kit. 6/10

@CBliss98: Can’t tell whether I love it or hate it

@jemmaaross: Top isn’t bad but the shorts are horrendous

@KetchleyShane: A thing of beauty 😍

@AlecHitchSUFC: TAKE MY MONEY 😍😍😍😍

@lew32323: What the fuck is that

@tomswapsicle: Can’t wait to see this in person! 🔥

@m_sexton97: This is horrific 😂😂😂
