Aberdeen have "paid homage to a significant period" in their history with their new "wasp" away kit.

Black and gold striped, it takes inspiration from the home strips they wore throughout the early 1900s - when the team were nicknamed The Wasps - before switching to red and white.

The kit was launched by the women's team because they never had the opportunity to wear those colours during the women's football ban in that era.

"This ban severely restricted the development of the women’s game for decades and meant that the Dons women did not get to represent Aberdeen as The Wasps," the club said in their reveal statement.
