That last piece of from the 1986 -1987 season while they were playing in the Henson yellow kit. Now I'm curious weather or not coastline perhaps supplied part of kit ? Maybe coastline was the training tops ? If anyone is interested then get on the case i will be divulging in my archive for evidence.

No, my brother Keith owned and operated Coastline independently.

Couldn't help but be curious why a 2nd kit manufacturer would use an identical kit design. Well indeed it's seems they were the same company in someway shape or form.
I don’t know if they were. Henson also supplied Aston Villa’s kit at the time, and I can’t imagine that a club like Villa was supplied by a Little backstreet operation in Paignton.

What sometimes used to happen, was that the new manufacturer would take over an existing kit design. Pretty sure it has happened to us a few times in the past, probably when there was the policy of not changing a Kit design for at least two years.

Excellent hector, get you. Though that advert was from the 86/87 season. I've a feeling the tracksuit tops were supplied by coastline on 86/87and indeed the following year the 1st team kit then also then become coastline. I look into it.
