Salford in blue – A look back

Ahead of the launch of our 2018 away kit we’re looking through some memorable away kits of yesteryear and today we’re focusing on Salford in blue.

The 2001 Willows Centenary away shirt was a dark blue and the Club secured Super League status for another season in 2001. Salford racked up four away victories in 2001 with victories over Warrington, Castleford, Huddersfield and London which, in the end, were pivotal as the Red Devils avoided the drop by three points.

Salford’s previous away kit in 2000 was also dark blue and again warranted a solid Super League finish for the Red Devils. Salford finished 9th winning 10 of their 28 Super League games with three coming away from home – A double over London before a victory at The Shay against Halifax.

A light blue away shirt was the theme for the 1998 season but unfortunately it didn’t bring much success away from The Willows with Salford finishing 11th however they were nine points above basement Club Huddersfield whom they beat away from home in August 1998.

Salford donned an electric blue kit throughout the 1989-1990 season which also featured black, white and red V’s across the chest. However, it brought minimal success on the sides travels that season with Salford winning three away games at Barrow, Featherstone and Hull in the first round of the Regal Trophy.

Could we see Salford wearing a predominantly blue away kit in 2018?
