Leicester City celebrates 125 years next season, and a new kit has been chosen by the foxes faithful… but what else can this major season represent for the club?

Leicester City today announced that next seasons 125 year season will be marked with a new plain shirt that will only display the clubs badge.
Four designs were short listed and it was left to the fans to decide what shirt the East Midland club would wear during the 2009/2010 season. The plain shirt design sat next to one that displayed ‘125’, another stating ‘Foxes Forever’ and a final design issuing the fans favourite song ‘Blue Army’. Over 20,000 fans took the bait to vote and 65% felt the plain shirt was the right shirt to wear for such a season.
I think the correct choice has been made here and the Leicester City team will look very stylish and retro in what will be a season of great importance. The 2009/2010 season not only represents 125 years of Leicester City it is sure to also see the return to the English Leagues second tier after the club famously slipped into the lowest standard of football in its history last term.
The rejected three designs would have looked a tad corny and probably a little stupid to be fair and with what happened on the pitch last season the club certainly don’t want to attract further mocking rights to their neighbouring fans of Nottingham Forest and Derby County. This plain design can not only represent our 125th birthday it can mirror that of a clean slate, a new beginning and see us begin rising toward the dizzy heights we we’re touching little over a decade ago.
What better way to celebrate 125 years of Leicester City than a second successive promotion to the Premier League?……..or is this just wishful thinking from a local boy?
