Everton's Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott model 2018-19 home kit

After enduring something of a fractured, hit and miss campaign this time round, Everton are hoping that 2018-19 will provide the club with the opportunity for a fresh start.

As such, the Toffees have furnished themselves with a handsome new kit to kick off the new season with, produced in close collaboration with their fans.

Over the past 15 months, Umbro have worked in close proximity with Everton's supporter base to develop the new vintage-tinged strip.

After voicing their preference for a traditional kit, thousands of fans were able to give their input on the colour of the shirt, the style of collar and other various design features.

As a result, the 2018-19 kit will see a return for Umbro's iconic diamond sleeve taping as well as a 1970s-approved two-button collar placket,

The new outfit is set to be worn for the very first time in Everton's final home game of the season, against Southampton this coming Saturday afternoon.

"This kit is a subtle nod to Everton's traditions, but is one that every one of us will wear proudly on Saturday and for the season to come as we look to write the club's future," captain Phil Jagielka said.

"When you pull on an Everton shirt you are representing Evertonians everywhere, and for this one to be made up of what they want makes it just that bit more special."

No pressure, then.
