Man Utd Shirts Newton Heath -1949
We take you back to 1892 when our beloved Manchester United were known as Newton Heath. The first ever kit to be worn was the classic yellow and green 1892 strip (that would reappear 100 years later). At the turn of the century when the club became Manchester United, the team wore red but also experimented throughout the next 20 years, wearing blue and white stripes, red and white stripes, and white with a large red V (as worn in the 1909 FA Cup Final). It wasn't until 1928 that Man United switched permanently to the red, white and black colours they have become so famous for. Some of these shirts have been recreated and are popular retro tops you can still order online today. On this page you can find every United shirt worn from the days of Newton Heath upto Manchester United's FA Cup vs Blackpool in 1949.

1892 - Newton Heath home shirt

The Newton Heath shirt from the 1890s was also recreated and worn by the 1993 team to celebrate United's humble beginnings. Like the current United side, Newton Heath played in several strips including white shirts, black shorts and the famous red and white kit adopted below.

The Manchester United kit of 1903 - 1916

1903 - Manchester United away shirt

United occasionally wore this blue and white striped shirt between 1903 and 1916. Umbro based their 1995 third kit on this unusual choice. During an FA Cup game in 1903 at Everton, United changed from their familiar red shirts into this blue and white away kit at half-time because of adverse weather conditions. They lost the game 3-1. Ironically, 93 years later, United ditched their ill-fated grey kit at half time (for other well-documented reasons). The result that day?... they also lost the game 3-1.

Manchester United Jersey from the 1909 FA Cup Final

1909 - Manchester United FA Cup Final shirt

United reached their first ever FA Cup Final in 1909 against Bristol City. Both sides agreed to change from their usual red shirts and United opted to play in this white lace-up kit with a red 'V', complimented by the red rose of Lancashire. The company that made the kit was interestingly owned by winger Billy Meredith. United won the game 1-0.

Manchester United 1948 FA Cup Final jersey

1948 - Manchester United FA Cup Final shirt

If ever a team deserved to win the FA Cup Final it was United team that wore this blue strip in 1948. They scored 18 goals against First Division opposition on the way to set up a classic against Stanley Matthews' Blackpool. After coming from behind, two goals from Rowley and one each from Pearson and Anderson secured a wonderful 4-2 win in one of the best Finals ever. The badge used for this final was the Manchester coat of arms.
