Tottenham Hotspur have officially unveiled their home and away shirts for the 2014/15 season.
Inspired by former player and manager Bill Nicholson, the shirts mark the 10th anniversary of Nicholson’s death. To honor him, the home shirt has the words “Echo of Glory” woven into them from one of Nicholson’s famous quotes:
‘It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.’
According to the club, the home kit is a traditional lilywhite shirt set off by a navy blue horizontal stripe running across the chest. A jacquard runs across the shoulders which includes the words ‘Echo of Glory’ taken from Bill’s quote together with a pattern inspired by the famous gates which lead up to White Hart Lane on Bill Nicholson Way. Yellow taping on the sleeve cuff and collar adds an additional color flash to set off solid navy blue shorts and white socks.
In the away kit, a yellow highlight is more visible down the front of the black shirt, with 11 stripes signifying the number of trophies won during Bill’s reign. Yellow taping is also replicated along the sides of the accompanying black shorts and socks.
