Albion Women switch to navy shorts

Albion Women will wear navy shorts with their home kit for the remainder of the 2022/23 season and beyond. 

The decision to don navy rather than white shorts was taken following full consultation with the Albion Women playing squad. 

Wearing white clothing while on a period is an issue that has been highlighted by women across all sports, and Albion will ensure this is fully considered when designing all future home kits.

The Baggies continue their FAW National League Northern Premier Division against Brighouse Town on Sunday at Birmingham County Football Association Field, Ray Hall Lane. Tickets are priced £5 adults and £1 concessions and can be purchased here.

Albion Women captain, Hannah George, said: “It’s great that the club are supporting our change to navy shorts. 

“Representing the club professionally and looking smart in the kit is really important to us. This change will help us to focus on our performance without added concerns or anxiety.”

Head Coach, Jenny Sugarman, added: “It’s our job as staff to find every percentage point we can to support our players to perform at their best. 

“I’m proud the club have supported the decision to switch to navy shorts for our female players. It’s another sign of the continued integration of the women’s team across the club and recognition of a progressive and inclusive culture.”
