West Brom Women have made the decision to change the color of their shorts due to the team’s concerns about wearing white during their periods.
The FA National League Northern Premier Division team announced their move from white shorts to navy blue on Thursday after extensive consultation with their playing group.
Albion announced they will wear their new navy blue shorts for the first time at this weekend’s game with Brighouse Town and will ensure future home kits follow a similar format and not use white shorts, an issue highlighted by the Lionesses over the summer.
“Albion Women will wear navy shorts with their home kit for the remainder of the 2022/23 season and beyond,” the club said in a statement.
Captain Hannah George welcomed the move, adding: “It’s great to have the club back our move to navy shorts.
“It’s very important to us to represent the club professionally and to look smart in kit. This change will help us focus on our performance without additional concerns or anxiety.”
West Brom head coach Jenny Sugarman said: “It’s our job as a team to find every percentage point we can to help our players play their best.
“I am proud that the club supported the decision to switch to navy blue shorts for our players.
“This is another sign of the continued integration of the women’s team across the club and recognition of a progressive and inclusive culture.”
