Rotherham United defender Frazer Richardson was the man chosen to pose as the model for the Millers’ new navy blue away shirt release at AESSEAL New York Stadium.
The all-navy affair has new shirt sponsor Balreed’s logo emblazoned across the front and features a streamlined red trim down the side.
A subtle crescent of red signifies the v-neck collar on the jersey with lettering of ‘RUFC’ reinforcing the club’s identity on the socks.
Rotherham-born defender Richardson, who also tried on the newly released home shirt, was particularly impressed with the kit that the Millers will be sporting on the road next season:
“I think it’s nice and it’s a little bit different being navy blue,” he commented.
“It’s understated and I think it has a classy look as a result of that, it’s also good that it’s got the touch of Millers’ red down the sides.”
After donning the new home kit for the first time at AESSEAL New York Stadium yesterday afternoon, Richardson was also delighted to see that the club had retained a familiar look with the design:
“I’m also over the moon they’ve kept the traditional red shirt and white sleeves for the home kit.
“It’s something that Rotherham has had for so many years and is easily identifiable to fans of other clubs."
